Surgical Technologists are Integral in Healthcare

Surgical techs are skilled healthcare professionals who help ensure surgeries are conducted smoothly, efficiently, and safely. From prepping the operating room (OR) to handling surgical equipment and assisting the surgeon, these professionals help in creating the optimal & safe environment for surgeries.

As a surgical technologist, you work closely with surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists, and other surgical team members, and you’re a critical member of the OR team.

On a typical day, Surgical Techs start by reviewing the surgical schedule, ensuring the equipment and supplies needed during the procedure are in order. Once that is done, surgical techs ensure that Operating Room is set up properly while maintaining strict adherence to sterile procedures.

During surgery, they have to be ready for any emergency and anticipate the needs of the surgeon. This involves staying focused, passing instruments whenever necessary, and ensuring a sterile environment.  Post-surgery, surgical techs are tasked to clean the OR, safely disposing of any contaminated material and sterilizing the OR. In emergency situations, surgical technologists rise to the occasion, working seamlessly with the surgical team to navigate any unexpected circumstances.

Surgical Techs are integral in any healthcare team and are the unsung heroes of successful surgeries.

Why We love  Healthcare

Healthcare has been one of the fastest-growing industries for many years now, and this bandwagon won’t slow down in the near future. The baby boomer population is aging, and plus advances in surgical, anesthetic, and intensive care techniques are seen every single day.

The modern lifestyle has also led to an uptick in chronic diseases like diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.  These conditions may lead to complications that require surgical intervention, such as joint replacements or heart procedures.

All of this has led to growth in the number of surgeries, and a greater proportion of the population is undergoing surgical procedures, which translates to a higher demand for surgical techs.

But how fast is this demand growing?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (bls.gov), employment of surgical technologists is set to grow at 6% by 2031,  with close to 10,000 job openings projected every year. And with a median wage of $48,510 annually, surgical tech is a promising & rewarding career.

“Surgical Technologists play an integral part in healthcare…you're invaluable to surgical care!”

- Grant Aldrich, Founder at Preppy
