Trends in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction Recovery Protocols

October 27, 2020–September 30, 2021

Fill Out the Survey

Purpose: The aim of this study is to collect responses from orthopedic surgeons who regularly perform anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions via an electronic survey with the purpose of identifying trends in the clinical utilization of various recovery practices identified in literature.

Management of Post-Traumatic Knee Hemarthrosis in Young, Non-Hemophilic Patients

September 28, 2020–September 28, 2021

Fill Out the Survey

Purpose: This is a survey-based study of orthopedic practices for the management of post-traumatic knee hemarthrosis in non-hemophilic patients less than 25 years of age. Complications of knee hemarthrosis are well-documented and significant. There is currently no standard treatment guideline for this population despite the detrimental acute and long-term complications of intra-articular bleeds. We developed a questionnaire based on literature review and known diagnostic tests and interventions to help determine the most widely practiced management strategies by healthcare providers in orthopedic surgery. Our goal is to publish our findings to provide data for future development of a treatment guideline for post-traumatic knee hemarthrosis in young, non-hemophilic patients.

Understanding Cerebrovascular Events in Beach Chair Arthroscopy

January 20, 2021–January 20, 2022

Fill Out the Survey

Purpose: The goal of this investigation is to evaluate the incidence and causes behind the cerebrovascular events in patients undergoing surgery in the beach chair position from arthroscopic surgeons.

Musculoskeletal Pain in Sports Medicine Surgeons

May 7, 2021–January 1, 2022

Fill Out the Survey

Purpose: Musculoskeletal pain is common among all surgeons, particularly orthopedists due to strenuous postures and the considerable physical efforts required in limb manipulation. Sports medicine surgeons participating in arthroscopy are at a particularly high risk due to the flexed neck and elevated shoulder position during these procedures. The goal of this 5 minute survey is to evaluate ergonomic habits among sports medicine surgeons and quantify the prevalence of work-related musculoskeletal pain among this population. is made possible by displaying online advertisements to our visitors.
