Managing Expectations Before and After Shoulder Surgery

    Some shoulder surgery patients are going to be unhappy with their outcome, even if by all objective measures, they have a good outcome.

    We asked 3 shoulder specialists – R. Bryan Butler, MD, from South Carolina; Felix S. “Buddy” Savoie, III, MD, from Louisiana; and J. Michael Wiater, MD, from Michigan – how they manage these patients, as well as which preoperative and postoperative assessment and outcome measures they use to evaluate their shoulder surgery patients.
