An operating theater (also known as a good roomoperating suitetheatre (British English), operation suite or OR) is a facility within a hospital where surgical operations are carried out in an aseptic environment.

Historically, the term “operating theatre” referred to a non-sterile, tiered theater or amphitheater in which students and other spectators could watch surgeons perform surgery. Contemporary operating rooms are devoid of a theatre setting, making the term “operating theater” a misnomer. There are only two old-style operating theaters left, both of which are preserved as part of museums.
