Surgical Technologist

Surgical technologists play an important role at Munson by assisting the surgeon during daily surgical procedures and ensuring a safe environment for our patients.

Surgical technologists work under the authority of the surgeon. Before an operation, they help prepare the operating room by setting up surgical instruments and equipment, sterile drapes, and sterile solutions. These professionals assemble the sterile and non-sterile equipment, check to ensure it is working properly, and make adjustments as necessary.

In addition, our surgical technologists help prepare patients for surgery by washing, shaving, and disinfecting incision sites. Technologists transport patients to the operating room and help position them on the operating table. They also observe patients' vital signs, check charts, and assist the surgical team with putting on sterile gowns and gloves.
