What is surgical assisting all about?
Surgical Assisting involves active participation of a trained individual who is capable and able to assist the surgeon in completing a surgical procedure, safely and expeditiously. A surgical assistant functions in the role of a second physician, at the operating table. Ideally this individual should be another qualified surgeon or surgical resident; however, other licensed physicians experienced in surgical assisting would be the next choice. Non-licensed physicians or non-physicians with additional formal training and national certification as a surgical assistant are also acceptable, as deemed appropriate by the primary responsible surgeon, for the type and complexity of the surgical procedure.
