Research and Clinical Trials

Identifying athletes at risk for ACL injury
Outcomes of cartilage injuries
This is a prospective, randomized trial designed to compare two treatments for articular cartilage defect legions: microfracture and Hyalofast® scaffold. Hyalofast is made from a synthetic form of a substance called hyaluronic acid that is found naturally in the knee joint and other places throughout the body. It is combined with autologous bone marrow aspirate concentrate and surgically implanted into the cartilage defect. It is believed that the bone marrow cells eventually will grow into new cartilage and fill the defect while the Hyalofast® eventually dissolves away with time.
NUsurface® Meniscus Implant
The NUsurface Meniscus Implant is a Polycarbonate-Urethane (PCU)-based device reinforced with high tensile Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fibers as a treatment alternative for patients with persistent knee pain following meniscus surgery. This multi-center, prospective, randomized, interventional clinical study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the NUsurface device compared to the standard of care for patients whose medial meniscus may have had tears or degeneration requiring medical or surgical treatment.
This clinical trial evaluates the safety and clinical effectiveness of autologous protein solution (APS), prepared from a small sample of your own blood (usually taken from a vein in your arm) with an investigational device called the nSTRIDE APS Kit, on pain and function associated with knee osteoarthritis. In this randomized blinded trial, the injection of patient's own blood and growth factors will be compared to a saline injection.
