This study delves into the multi-dimensional interrelationship of workplace stress, work-life balance, mental stress, and their combined impact on the mental health of surgeons in south Punjab. Uncompromising perfectionism and tight schedules combined with personal duties are essential in the surgeon’s line of work. Using a sample of surgeons from various medical institutions in Lahore, this research applies a mixed-method approach to explore the complicated realities, which influence their mental health. A quantitative analysis is done through a survey of the surgeons who are asked about the extent and intensity of workplace anxiety, perceived work-life balance, the level of mental stress, and the current condition of their mental health. In addition, qualitative interviews provide more detailed information regarding individual experiences, adaptive strategies, and organizational correlates of mental health outcomes. The results of this study will help to disentangle the tangled web of interrelationships between the working problems and the surgeon’s mental health, and to provide more details about the issues that surgeons face. Identification of stressors and possible controls has implications for interventions and support systems that are designed to promote the psychological well-being of surgeons in Lahore and potentially in other parts of the world.
