“‘Physician Heal Thyself’ Isn’t Working” – Editorial by Dr. Adrian Park in Annals of Surgery

by jmiller on November 16, 2017

Congratulations to Dr. Adrian Park for having his second publication in one year in the top prestigious surgery journal, Annals of Surgery.  Dr. Park’s editorial is a commentary on the work of Dr. Chantal Alleblas, appearing in the same issue, which focuses on worker injury related to minimally invasive surgery in the abdominal cavity, including, general, gynecological, and urological surgery.  These surgeon related worker injuries are mainly the result of  ergonomic issues causing musculoskeletal disorder injuries, a topic that may be equally important as “physician burnout”, but with far less media attention.  Click here to read Dr. Park’s editorial and Dr. Alleblas’s  article “Prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders among physicians performing minimally invasive surgery: a systematic review”.
