Can a PA slice and dice?

Physician Assistant Philter: Considering pursuing this as a career. More specifically, Surgical Physician Assistant. I understand a Physician Assistant works under the license of a Physician, but I am familiar with many offices where on a day-to-day basis, the PA on site has the highest level degree. My specific question is this: what is the most advanced procedure a PA can perform autonomously? For example, I know PAs can perform biopsies of skin lesions, but can they go beyond that?
