Athletes with shoulder instability can now return to sports

Deccan Chronicle—July 8, 2018

Deccan Chronicle highlighted a study by HSS sports medicine surgeon Frank A. Cordasco, MD, MS, who found that young athletes with shoulder instability could return to their respective sports.

The study, published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine, investigated teenage patients who underwent arthroscopic anterior stabilization with a follow-up of two years.

"Our study highlights the importance for young athletes with shoulder instability, undergoing a thorough preoperative evaluation to determine the number of instability events and to obtain appropriate advanced imaging when a significant bone loss is suspected," said Dr. Cordasco.

"This study demonstrates that when the high-risk young athlete with fewer episodes of pre-operative instability is treated with an arthroscopic stabilization, the revision surgery rate is low and the return to sport rate is high," he added.
