Surgical Technologists are integral members of the surgical team. They work closely with surgeons, anesthesiologists, registered nurses and others to deliver patient care before, during and after surgery. Surgical technologists function primarily in the sterile capacity, passing instruments and equipment to the surgeon during the surgical procedure. They are employed in operating rooms, delivery rooms, emergency departments, and ambulatory care areas.
