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.

Patterns of Hip Capsular Closure Management for Hip Arthroscopy Procedures

October 20, 2021 – August 20, 2022

Fill Out the Survey

Purpose: Significant variability exists in the literature and in clinical practice regarding capsular management patterns in hip arthroscopy, namely in the type of capsulotomy performed and methods of capsular closure. As such, the goal of this survey is to help establish an expert consensus on current hip capsular management practices. The purpose of our study will be to establish a better understanding on the variation in hip capsular management for hip arthroscopy procedures according to practice location, practice type, length of practice, amount of hip arthroscopy experience, gender, and whether participants are fellowship trained.

A Survey of Graft Utilization in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

December 6, 2021 – March 6, 2022

Fill Out the Survey

Purpose: The goal of this brief survey is to quantify current graft utilization in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and evaluate whether there has been a change in graft preference. Additional questions will evaluate preferences for augmentation of undersized grafts, graft choice in different patient populations, and demographic characteristics of the survey participants. is made possible by displaying online advertisements to our visitors.
