Multicenter Orthopaedic Outcomes Network (MOON) Shoulder Instability Study 

Multicenter Orthopaedic Outcomes Network (MOON) Shoulder Instability Study is a prospective, multicenter trial hoping to learn the predictors for both excellent and poor function after surgery for shoulder instability. Approximately 2,500 people will be enrolled in in this study and will be followed for up to 20 years. Patients will be asked to complete specific patient reported outcome measures, as well as demographic and socioeconomic information before surgery and then at 2, 6, 10 and 20 years after surgery. The surgeons will complete a form before surgery on radiographic findings and physical exam. The surgeon will also complete a form detailing surgical findings and the repair that was performed. Patients will wear a sling post-operatively, and follow standardized rehabilitation protocols.

Questions about the MOON study can be directed to Shannon Ortiz at shannon-ortiz@uiowa.edu.
