Musculoskeletal Injuries Questionnaire

Dear Colleague, We know your time is extremely valuable. However, we would be extremely grateful if we could borrow 5 minutes of your time

to answer this brief questionnaire on musculoskeletal injuries in surgeons.  This is something that has not been studied in plastic surgeons and is critical to understanding the problem that many of us face, but likely never talk about.  Your responses will be anonymous and confidential. Participation is voluntary, and you may withdraw at any time without penalty.


For questions about the study, you may contact Jeffrey E. Janis at or Tormod S. Westvik at


Thank you, in advance, for your time.  It is greatly appreciated.
