Shoulder Instability

Shoulder Instability


MOON Shoulder Instability is a prospective, multicenter cohort study that aims to determine the predictors of failure and poor outcome after surgery for shoulder instability in hopes to improve surgical outcomes for all patients.  We started enrolling for this study in 2012, and have enrolled over 1400 patients to date.  We have published several papers looking at patient factors at baseline for this cohort, and will soon be analyzing follow-up data.  This study is based out of University of Iowa, and is led by Dr. Carolyn Hettrich and Dr. Brian Wolf.                                                  __________________
