The surgical technologist ensures that the operating room environment is safe, that surgical supplies and equipment are functioning properly, and that the operative procedure is conducted under conditions that maximize patient safety and outcomes.

Surgical technologists possess expertise in the theory and application of aseptic technique and combine the knowledge of human anatomy, surgical procedures, and the implementation of tools and technology to facilitate a physician’s performance of invasive therapeutic and diagnostic procedures. This will ensure optimal conditions for patient health and recovery.
