surgical technology
​Memorial is equipped with state-of-the-art operating rooms and surgical technology. Everything has been carefully selected for the ability to accommodate surgery that is as safe as possible.

Your surgical team will include highly skilled, specialty-trained individuals. Your surgeon will lead team members including registered nurses, certified surgical technologists, an anesthesiologist, and possibly an RN surgical assistant or physician assistant, during your procedure.*

The temperature in the operating room may feel cool. Warm blankets will be provided to keep you comfortable. Prior to the procedure, the nurse will begin to put equipment on you in order to monitor your vital signs, heart, and lungs.

*Occasionally, nursing students, allied health professionals in training, or manufacturer's representatives may be present. If you prefer that they not be present, you may indicate that on your Informed Surgery Consent Form, which you will complete the day of surgery.
