Assisting in Surgery

Surgeon's Assistants are qualified practitioners during surgery who are licensed practitioners with sufficient training to conduct a delegated portion of a procedure without the need for more experienced supervision and who are approved by the hospital for these operative or patient care responsibilities. During a surgical procedure a surgical assistant functions in the role of a second physician in the operating room. The healthcare professionals practicing as surgeon assistants varies internationally and each country has legal requirements for the scope of practice for the surgeon assistants.
