Surgical assistants are indispensable in carrying out your operation. They may be general doctors or theatre nurses who are specialists in operating room assistance and instrumentation.
Surgical assistance is a discipline that demands concentration and technical knowledge of the equipment. It requires a sharp and meticulous mind, as it consists of anticipating the needs and movements of the surgeon.
Very often, your surgical operation is designed to be performed with four hands. Your surgeon's hands and those of her assistant work together in a well-balanced and synchronised manner.
