Surgery team. A team of surgery staff performing an operation in a hospital operating theatre. The surgeon is on the left looking through a magnifying eyepiece to help him perform intricate work. The anaesthetist, responsible for inducing unconsciousness in the patient, is sitting behind the patient's head. The surgical instruments are arranged on a table. The staff are wearing sterile surgical gowns, masks and gloves. Surgical instruments and any other operating equipment will have been sterilised. Air in the operating room will have been filtered. All these measures are designed to minimise the risk of infection to the patient.
