Survey Title: Wound closure methods in ankle fracture surgery

Survey Close Date: March 31, 2017

Survey Author: Peter Krause, MD and Jack McKay, MD

Description:  The results of this survey will give us an idea of the relative usage of wound closure techniques.  This survey could potentially suggest which methods of closure are preferred, possibly because they are quicker or produce fewer wound complications. Target Audience: all domestic members.


Survey Title: Evaluating surgeon practices regarding carpal tunnel release in the setting of distal radius fractures

Survey Close Date: January 15, 2017

Survey Author:Sezai Ozkan, MD, Brady Evans, MD, MBA, Marilyn Heng, MD, MPH, F.W. Bloemers, MD, PhD, Chaitanya Mudgal, MD

Description: This survey consists of questions regarding demographics of the participating surgeons and questions about the surgeon practice regarding carpal tunnel release during ORIF of the distal radius fracture. The aim of each of these questions is to identify variations in surgeon practice regarding concurrent carpal tunnel release and identify factors associated with this decision making. Target Audience: all members.


Survey Title: Orthopaedic Surgeons’ Perspectives on Gun Violence

Survey Close Date: February 28, 2017

Survey Author: Stephen Iacono, BS/MPH; Daniel Elkin, MD; Mark Adams, MD; Mark Reilly, MD; Michael Sirkin, MD

Description:  This survey aims to capture the opinions of orthopaedic surgeons about the issues surrounding gun violence in the United States.  While the evaluation and treatment of gun shot injuries has been extensively studied, there is little information about how orthopaedic surgeons perceive this societal matter.  We believe that the information garnered from this query will help guide future discussion about gun violence and the potential role that orthopaedic surgeons should play in advocacy on a regional and national level.  Target audience: domestic members.
