All surgery requires the set of medical tools in the Operating Theatre, along with a table (a surgical table gives no negative results). For the most part, only medical doctors and the Chief Medical Officer can perform advanced surgery.

Surgical Tools

Surgical tools can be found in surgery and robotics. Additionally, cargo can make them with their autolathe. It is best to keep surgical tools in their proper places so your fellow crewmembers can use them when they need them. The following are the standard surgical tools most doctors will need:

  • Drapes.pngDrapes
Determines which place is about to be cut, sliced 'n' diced.
  • Scalpel.pngScalpel
An extremely sharp knife used for surgery, also works as an excellent melee weapon.
  • Saw.pngCircular saw
Note the blood stains; if there are no blood stains, you already know what you're doing with this bad boy. This is a tiny item capable of being used by Medical Doctors to cut out brains to be put into robots. It is also a highly effective melee weapon. They can be found in the Operating Theatre or made in an autolathe. It is extremely easy to blind yourself and others with this weapon, so letting the entire crew run around with these is extremely dangerous. It is also used by botanists to cut logs into planks.
  • Drill.pngSurgical drill
A item used for surgery. Surprisingly robust, especially against eyes.
  • Hemostat.pngHemostat
Surgical item used to clamp blood vessels to prevent bleeding.
  • Cautery.pngCautery
Surgical item used to cauterize wounds to prevent bleeding.
  • Retractor.pngRetractor
Surgical item used to manipulate organs.
  • MMI.pngMMI (For Robotics)
The monstrous device used to give cyborgs life. The roboticist starts with a few empty ones and its low research requirements mean more can easily be built in the protolathe. A brain in an MMI has no limbs and is, of course, not capable of interacting with anything - but at least it can talk. There's also a radio-enabled version that lets those snooty brains complain about you over the radio.
  • Straight.pngStraight Jacket
A vest used to restrict a humans movement/interaction.
  • Muzzle.pngMuzzle
Stops those pesky patients from screaming!
  • N2Otank.pngSleeping Agent Tank
A tank filled with Nitrous Oxide for keeping the patient unconscious during surgery to prevent him/her from escaping feeling pain.
How to set internals:
  • To set internals and make your patient sleep you need to first remove any item from their back. Once done you need to put a breath mask on them and then put the anesthetic tank onto their back. Once it is on their back you can put them on internals by clicking "set internals" on the same menu you used to put the tank on their back. Once done your patient should fall asleep. Remember to use a proper anesthetic mixture, as pure N2O will suffocate the patient.

If you can't find an operating table, have no fear, you can fix someone up anywhere! Any table or bed will do, and even the floor if you have no other choice. It will reduce the chance of successfully completing a step, however.
