The primary objective of this study is to obtain functional outcomes (VAS pain, VAS satisfaction, VAS function, Simple Shoulder Test (SST) and American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) Score), perform a physical examination of the shoulder and perform a radiographic analysis of patients at a minimum of 6 months after reverse total shoulder arthroplasty, total shoulder arthroplasty, arthroscopic scapulothoracic bursectomy, acromioclavicular joint reconstruction and arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. Secondary objective is to determine whether higher levels of pre-operative psychological distress predict worse outcomes after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. Tertiary objective is to assess complication and dislocation rates for patients who received reverse total shoulder arthroplasty at a minimum of 2 years post operatively.
