New study reveals workplace injuries of orthopedic surgeons

Orthopedic surgeons all across Pennsylvania are expected to be precise and highly skilled in order to perform surgeries well. Unfortunately, many of them also suffer workplace injuries as a result of their delicate work, and some of these injuries are severe enough to keep them at home.
