What is a Surgical Technologist?

During World War II, the need for perioperative personnel was overwhelming. The role of the surgical technologist was born and evolved into a separate allied health field. Surgical technologists serve as an integral part of the surgical team providing surgical care to patients. Surgical technologists work under the supervision of a surgeon to facilitate the safe and effective conduct of surgical procedures.

Serving the members of Kansas for 20 years!

Recently KSAST was recognized for their "dedication to quality, resilience in the face of challenges and vision for the future" by Nancy Hartwell, State Assembly Manager for the Association of Surgical Technologists.

We are proud of this award and look forward even greater achievements.
