    Ergonomics in the Clinic and Operating Room

    Ergonomics in the Clinic and Operating Room

    Recent surveys have shown that a majority of ophthalmologists report musculoskeletal pain in the neck, back, and shoulders. Those who regularly use surgical loupes or perform clinical exams that induce neck flexion—such as when examining for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP)—may be at even higher risk for chronic pain and disability. In today’s episode, Drs. Donny Suh and Safeer Siddicky discuss ergonomics in both the clinic and operating room, and how posture, behavior, and simple ergonomic modifications can help prevent musculoskeletal disease.
