The surgeon has washed his hands, which is why he needs help to put on the surgical gown. 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.
