  • Reverse shoulder arthroplasty for rotator cuff tears with and without prior failed rotator cuff repair: A large-scale comparative analysis

  • Study provides attainable goals for return to sports after reconstructive foot surgery

    Many patients who undergo surgery to correct a collapsing foot share the question: Will I be able to get back to doing the things I love? A new study by researchers at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York City provides attainable goals for return to sports and related physical activities for patients who have undergone procedures to correct progressive collapsing foot deformity (PCFD), a severe musculoskeletal pathology that can drastically inhibit a patient's daily function.
