An Orthopaedic Technologist-Surgery Certified (OT-SC) carries out functions that will provide assistance to the Orthopaedic Surgeon in performing safe operations with optimal results for patients. OT-SCs perform under the direct supervision of the Orthopaedic Surgeon and have acquired sufficient knowledge to perfom the necessary duties through formal education, continuing education, supervised practice, or any combination of these methods. OT-SCs are not trained to perform any surgical procedure independent of an Orthopaedic Surgeon. The defined role of the OT-SC will vary with the Orthopaedic Surgeon, surgical procedure, or the facilities where performed.
