Will I be able to return to hang gliding after my bilateral open repairs for shoulder dislocation?

While repairs for shoulder instability are no longer a major part of our practice, we still receive follow-ups from folks from years back. One interesting cases is that of a physician in his late 40's who had bilateral shoulder dislocations that were a problem - especially when he landed his hang glider. He had bilateral open Bankart repairs. It is great to see him catch a thermal at the end of this video clip.

This is what you'd like to avoid if you are a hang glider - an inflight dislocation!
