Surgeon with microscope. View of a surgeon looking through the eyepiece of an optical microscope. This may be to aid with microsurgery, a technique in which the area to be operated on is magnified to allow very delicate procedures to be performed. This is typically used in cases of difficult surgery, such as on the eye, or in the reconnection of blood vessels. Alternatively, the surgeon could be examining a sample removed from a patient prior to performing an operation. The gloves, cap and face mask help to maintain sterile conditions.
