How to Improve Surgeon Satisfaction and Patient Outcomes by Aligning Surgical Assistants

Not all surgical assistant partners are created equal. And, your surgeons will be the first to tell you when their expectations are not being met. Take your OR and your surgeons’ satisfaction to the next level. Review our guide, “How to Improve Surgeon Satisfaction and Patient Outcomes by Aligning Surgical Assistants,” to better understand how your surgeons need not just a second pair of hands, but a second pair of expert hands from an effective surgical assistant partner.

Due to the complexity of many surgical procedures—and the technology, equipment, and instruments required to safely and accurately perform them—surgeons often require a “first surgical assistant” and, sometimes, a “second surgical assistant” to perform vital tasks during surgery. Our team consists of physician assistants, registered nurse first assistants, and certified surgical assistants to support the surgeon across a range of areas, including:
  • General surgery
  • Orthopedics
  • Obstetrics/Gynecology
  • Neuro/Spine
  • Urology
  • Cardiothoracic
  • Plastics
  • Robotics
