Preparing for surgery. Surgeon washing his hands before surgery. Disinfectant in the soap will reduce the amount of harmful bacteria on his hands. The soap dispenser and taps are operated by elbow to prevent hand contamination. The surgeon will also wear surgical gloves during the surgery, and he is wearing sterile clothing to help prevent contamination of the patient. High standards of hygiene must be maintained in the operating theatre to prevent infection of patients. The surgeon is also wearing binocular magnifying glasses to help him see microscopic details of the surgical operation. Photographed in the UK.
