Excellence in orthopaedic research

The Department of Orthopaedics conducts both clinical and basic science research focused on the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and infections. Our programs include investigations into new antibiotics, new implants designed to facilitate healing, treatments for osteoarthritis, biomechanical testing and many others.

Musculoskeletal health is a field that encompasses many different types of experts and specialists. Our department collaborates with other researchers in other disciplines across The Ohio State University including veterinary medicine, biomedical engineering and mechanical engineering. We also work closely with research colleagues in other medical specialties like plastic surgery, infectious diseases, rehabilitation, radiology and neurological surgery.

Clinical Trials

Actifuse ABX Trial

Actifuse ABX

Actifuse ABX and local bone have comparable outcomes to only local bone in instrumented multi-level adult spinal deformity patients

The purpose of this study is to compare people who had a standard of care spinal fusion using part of their local bone graft (a small amount of bone from the region of the spine where the fusion is occurring) and Demineralized Bone Matrix (DBX), a market approved bone graft extender which is similar to a bone graft substitute, to correct an adult spinal deformity and people who will have a standard of care spinal fusion using a mixture of Actifuse ABX® (a market approved bone graft substitute) and a local bone graft. This study will compare the outcomes of both groups to help the orthopaedic surgeon conducting spinal fusions in the future.

Our research facilities

Our research facilities

Comparative Orthopedic Research Laboratory

Our mission is to investigate musculoskeletal biology and molecular medicine therapies that are associated with orthopedic disease conditions in horses and humans. Under this umbrella, we will study gene therapy systems and tissue engineering, as well as utilize a comparative approach in our research. We are dedicated to the efforts that are necessary for translational research which moves from “bench to bedside.” We will focus on conditions and therapies that are designed to be directly beneficial to our patients.

Our five main research focuses are:
  • Enhancing articular cartilage healing with emphasis on the cartilage/bone interface
  • Accelerating bone repair
  • Identifying genetic markers of orthopedic disease
  • Physiology and pharmacology of medications for joint disease
  • Optimizing gene therapy protocols for use in patients with orthopedic disease

Orthopaedics Ergonomics Laboratory

The Orthopaedic Ergonomics Laboratory's goal is to improve the physical interaction between workers, their work and the work environment through the study of the musculoskeletal system's response to work activities. In so doing, our focus continues to study the body's biomechanical response to a variety of occupational tasks, potential workplace interventions and the development of models predictive of back injury development and recovery. This is achieved through the measurement of body movements, joint loads and muscle recruitment patterns as different types of activities are performed. While much of the work relates to furthering our understanding of how to better optimize the interface between people and their work environment, the same measurement capabilities and techniques are applicable to addressing sports biomechanics research questions.

The laboratory consists of approximately 600 square feet of research space and the supporting computer facilities. The laboratory is equipped with six degree of freedom motion measurement systems, force platforms for obtaining ground reaction forces, strain gauges for measuring the forces exerted as activities are performed and surface electromyographic (EMG) recording equipment.

Microvascular Skills Laboratory

Microvascular Skills Laboratory is located in Riverside Methodist Hospital and provides the residents (and attending staff) with access to anatomic models, cadavers and animal models for surgical practice. The lab is equipped with anatomic models and simulators for learning arthroscopy, fresh frozen cadaver specimens for practicing new surgical techniques and an operating microscope for practicing vascular repairs on animal vessels.

Orthopaedic BioMaterials Laboratory

This lab is a multi-functional materials testing facility where a variety of basic and applied biomaterials research is conducted such as static, fatigue and viscoelastic materials evaluation, implant stability testing, bone and ligament strength determinations and fracture fixation rigidity testing. Projects include the development and evaluation of a reduced-modulus bone cement, quantification of the mechanical degradation of bioabsorbable implants, the effect of ligament preservation techniques on their strength and stiffness and implant micromotion measurements.

The lab is centered around an MTS Bionix 858 axial-torsional servohydraulic materials test system with a dedicated 400 MHz microcomputer and TestStar software for instrument control and data acquisition. An array of grips and fixtures are available for holding a variety of specimen types. Other equipment and instruments include a strain-gage conditioner for handling the output of strain gauges and extensometers, multiple LVDTs and controllers for quantifying micromotion, a temperature-controlled chamber for pseudo-physiologic testing and a three-dimensional micromotion transducer assembly for quantifying implant stability. Also available in the laboratory is a laser micrometer for optically measuring the dimensions (and computing the cross-sectional area) of specimens. This is of particular value when dealing with soft tissues which deform when measured with mechanical instruments (calipers, etc).

An adjacent room, used primarily for the formulation of bone cement resins and the preparation of specimens, is equipped with a fume hood, freezers, a slow-speed diamond saw, a grinding/mixing roller mill and a digital mini-lathe for reproducible specimen preparation.

The Department of Orthopaedics has acquired an EXAKT system consisting of a 310CPV band saw for precision controlled sectioning of tissues and implants with minimal interface aberration, a 400CS grinding system for precision grinding and polishing of tissue specimens and particularly tissues with implants, and a 520 light polymerization unit for mounting specimens in epoxy resin. This system has been set up as a joint venture with the College of Veterinary Medicine and is located in the Bone Histology Laboratory in the Veterinary Hospital Building where it is jointly administered by the Departments of Orthopaedics and Veterinary Clinical Sciences.
