Can I be a surgical tech if I have nerve damage in one hand? (slight loss of sensation and grip in my non dominant hand)

In brief: Yes and yes

Absolutely. Even a surgeon can continue to operate.
Only super delicate microsurgery could be an issue for the surgeon but even then as a tech you should be ok. Go for it...your body will adjust to the new needs
