What Are Operating Room Services?
  • The operating room is a specially designated, sterile room with very specialized lighting and equipment where a surgery or procedure is performed.


  • An operating room may be designed and equipped to provide care to patients with a wide range of surgical needs.


  • Operating rooms adhere to very strict regulations to ensure a surgically sterile environment.


  • Depending on the nature of the surgery, various forms of anesthesia may be administered by a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA).
