Surgical Technologist Week
It seems as if everything has a special week dedicated to it...icecream, milkshakes, donuts, pirates..you name it, it's celebrated! Well, this week we celebrate National Surgical Technologist week. I've been a surgtech for 42yrs. I was in the first class at Triton college for this career. I was even on the front of the college brochure for it! I don't have a copy of it or I probably would put it on the blog. Frankly, you'd never know it was me because, of course, I had a mask, hat, gown and gloves on! Like these pics;
I've had the privilege to see surgery go through many changes in the last 40yrs and then go back and pick up some techniques from the "old days".
