Surgical technologists work under the supervision of the surgeon who is in charge during the surgical procedure. Many surgical technologists remain in the operating room and advance in seniority and in earnings. Some surgical technologists advance by becoming specialists in a particular kind of surgery, such as open heart surgery, neurosurgery,
or liver transplants. With additional training, some advance to surgical assistants.

Many surgical technologists take jobs outside operating rooms. They may go to work for a company that sells sterile supplies or operating room equipment to hospitals. Others go to work for insurance companies. They may also become instructors. Some surgical technologists go back to school to become registered nurses, physician’s assistants, or doctors.
