 Indian spine surgeons J Naresh-Babu, Viswanadha Arun-Kumar and DGS Ragu of the Mallika Spine Centre, Andhra Pradesh performed an observational study whose purpose was to analyze the surgeon's neck postures while performing lumbar spinal surgeries.
 Lumbar spinal surgeries are on rising trend, and with increase in number of procedures, the average time spent by a spine surgeon performing surgical procedures is also increasing. The effect of operating posture on the surgeon's neck is unknown. From the studies conducted on usage of smartphones, abnormal neck postures, especially the forward head posture (FHP), were found to adversely affect the cervical spine of individuals.
