Orthopedics Today featured HSS orthopedic resident Joseph N. Liu, MD in an article about his study that was presented at the 2017 American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine Specialty Day Meeting.

Dr. Liu and his colleagues studied 121 patients who underwent MPFL reconstructions for recurrent patellar instability. They saw an improvement after collecting patient-reported outcome measures preoperatively and postoperatively.
