The JUPITER (Justifying Patellar Instability Treatment) Group was established as the first multi-center patellar instability study by principal investigators Dr. Beth Shubin Stein (Hospital for Special Surgery) and Dr. Shital Parikh (Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center).

This research group consists of surgeons representing healthcare institutions across the country. Since January 2017, this study has prospectively enrolled over 2000 knees. All patients enrolled in JUPITER will be followed for 10 years after either operative or non-operative treatment with the goal of gaining insight and understanding that will allow us to change current treatment protocols to help optimize patient outcomes.
