This project will be a multi-center, prospective longitudinal cohort for all patients undergoing primary shoulder instability surgery, excluding isolated SLAP repairs. We will be looking for risk factors for recurrent instability, revision surgery, and poor outcomes. Patients will be asked to complete the RAND-36, ASES, Shoulder Activity, EQ-5D and WOSI outcome measures, as well as demographic and socioeconomic information. Surgeons will complete a form after surgery with information on radiographic findings, physical exam, surgical findings, and the repair. The subject questionnaires will be completed over a series of timepoints and the subject's information from the subjects' electronic medical record will be abstracted for research data at various timepoints as well. Patients will wear a sling post-operatively, and follow standardized rehabilitation protocols, including physical therapy.
