Using a specialized non-invasive three-dimensional (3D) fluoroscopic imaging technique, we can visualize the shoulder joint in an accurate computer model. These models give insight into normal and abnormal shoulder mechanics. For example, we can assess the effects that treatments have on shoulder motion; such as total shoulder replacement, instability surgery, and rotator cuff repair. My goal in maintaining a rigorous research program is to advance and improve shoulder treatments for my patients through an objective scientific method.

Outcomes Research: We have an ongoing prospective initiative to provide quality metrics for every shoulder procedure we perform. These metrics will help patients have realistic expectations of their surgery while providing a comparison to other individuals who underwent the same procedure.
