Dr. Provencher will present options and scientific rationale for selection of surgical procedures and 'tricks' from his experiences. Dr. Tokish will present the criteria for return to activity and outcome studies following shoulder instabilities and share his unique perspective and experiences. After their formal presentations, each presenter will share a unique case study and what we can all learn from these elite warriors.
