Approach to Shoulder Instability

Approach to Shoulder Instability

The primary research question is to determine whether patients who undergo a stabilization of the shoulder using a novel decision-making algorithm (ISIS Score) have improved disease-specific quality of life at 1 year post-operatively, as measured by the Western Ontario Instability Index (WOSI) compared with patients who undergo stabilization using a conventional decision-making algorithm. Secondary outcomes include the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeon's (ASES) score, and difference in recurrence rates of dislocation between the two decision-making algorithms.
