A surgical technologist possesses expertise in the theory and application of sterile and aseptic technique and combines the knowledge of human anatomy, pathophysiology, surgical procedures, and implementation tools and technologies to facilitate a physician’s performance of surgery. The surgical technologist works under the supervision of a surgeon to ensure that the operating room environment is safe, that equipment functions properly, and that the operative procedure is conducted under conditions that maximize patient safety. Currently, the role of the surgical technologist is expanding to include other areas of surgery such as labor and delivery units, cardiac catheterization labs, outpatient surgery facilities, and for physicians in private practice.
