The Bureau of Labor Statistics approved for 2018 a separate definition for Surgical Assistants.

29-9093 Surgical Assistants Assist in operations, under the supervision of surgeons.
May, in accordance with State laws, help surgeons to make incisions and close surgical sites, manipulate or remove tissues, implant surgical devices or drains, suction the surgical site, place catheters, clamp or cauterize vessels or  issue, and apply dressings to surgical site. Excludes “Registered Nurses” (29-1141) and “Surgical Technologists” (29-2055)

This is an important step to the benefit of the profession and we thank everybody that was involved in sending their comments when it was requested a little over a year ago.
