Fancy words for holding a retractor and dabbing with gauze.(Original post by geniequeen48)
Sure, this is what I think a first assistant surgeon does: cutting sutures, tissue retraction, assistance with wound closure, cutting deep sutures and ligatures, nerve and deep tissue retraction, handling of tissur and manipulatiom of organs for exposure and access, assisting with homeostasis (most of this under supervision).
Or am I wrong?
If you want to be a surgeon, be a surgeon.
