Ascension Crittenton Physician Publishes Study in National Surgical Journal

Robert Keller, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon, Ascension Crittenton Hospital, participated in a research study that was recently published in the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery. The study entitled, Return to play after shoulder instability in National Football League athletes, focused on the rate of players’ ability to successfully return to play after sustaining a shoulder destabilizing injury. The study found that players who returned to play after undergoing a surgical repair had a lower recurrence rate and a longer interval of play before a recurring instability event. Kudos Dr. Keller!
