Surgical assistants perform operation at the Capitol

Where else can you watch surgery and get a side of eggs?

At the Virginia General Assembly.

The Association of Surgical Assistants is sponsoring a breakfast reception — complete with total knee replacement surgery — Tuesday morning. It’s a mock surgery, we think.

The group has descended on Capitol Square in support of a bill that licenses surgical assistants and surgical technologists.

Every day is somebody’s day to lobby during the 60-day session.

The surgical assistants aren’t alone Tuesday. It’s also a day for the Virginia Hospitality and Tourism Association, the Danville Community College Leadership Group, Wytheville Community College and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. Oh, and it’s Virginia Film Day at the Capitol.

Can anyone beat the surgery?
