In the cut

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Nandie Merjillia, a 35th Surgical Operations Squadron orthopedics clinic technician, cuts open a patient’s cast at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Nov. 15, 2017. After a patient’s injury heals, casts need to be removed. Orthopedic technicians also deal with patients in the clinic and are physician assistants for orthopedic surgeons. Knowing different sides of the job helps vastly in taking care of patients. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman Xiomara M. Martinez)
