Abstract: Objective: Evaluate QOL and its implications for health care providers specialized in orthopedics. Methods: In this quantitative, descriptive, cross-sectional study two questionnaires, World Health Organization Quality of Life (WHOQOL-100) and sociodemographic, were sent to 117 orthopedic surgeons, with 29 doctor's response. Statistical analysis was performed using three different tests: Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), Student t-test, and Pearson's linear correlation. The tests were applied with a reliability of 95%. Results: Twenty-nine orthopedic surgeons responded to the questionnaire. The studied variables regarding domains were age and employment duration, which have a positive relationship with the environment and social relationships domains; income, which positively influences the level of independence and environment domains; and workload, which negatively influences the psychological domain. Conclusion: Orthopedic physicians had high scores in the WHOQOL-100 domains and, in their perception, good quality of life had higher scores compared to other professions. © 2013 Sociedade Brasileira de Ortopedia e Traumatologia.
