Conclusions

In this study, both adolescent patients and their guardians reported shared decision making and understanding patients' sports and goals as surgeon qualities that were more important to them than surgeon sex or reputation. Further study is warranted to better understand the needs of young athletes because it relates to their healthcare treatment and outcomes.
