Are jobs in this industry on the rise? Are there any sub-sectors that are growing?

Where are the jobs? Which places have the most surgical assistant opportunities?

the job is changing. before, you got to do a lot more, but now, with endoscopic surgery, staples, and new electro cautery devices (like harmonic scalpels), there is not as much for an assistant to do. used to be you had to clamp, cut and tie, but now harmonic devices like the new focus does it all.

Are you starting to notice or feel pressure with healthcare reform in respect to the job changing?
