PI:  Jain, Nitin M.D.      Funding Agency: NIAMS      Grant No.: K23 AR059199 
Description: Phase I of this study is complete and we have recruited approximately 400 patients with shoulder pain. Recruitment for Phase II of this study includes ongoing efforts to enroll patients with rotator cuff tears. We have extensive epidemiological and outcomes data on the participants in our study. Our goal is to understand prognostic factors for better outcomes after surgical and non-surgical treatments for rotator cuff tears and comparative-effectiveness of these two treatment approaches. We welcome investigators and students who wish to collaborate with us.
