Surgical Gowns were not in use until the early 18C since at that time doctors used to conduct operations in an amphitheater or auditorium. The technological advancement and knowledge of infections led to the increased use of cotton masks, surgical drapes and other medical garments. Surgical Gowns play a pivotal role in the medical fraternity as it minimizes the transfer of bacteria and other micro-organisms. Besides being protective clothing, these gowns also help to prevent the human body from stains of blood or other chemicals and bodily fluids during surgical procedures.
