The purpose of this study is to examine health outcomes in former Ohio State University athletes who played a varsity sport during their time at OSU. The objective is to determine whether athletes who sustained a concussion have different health outcomes than those who did not sustain a concussion. Any former OSU varsity athlete can participate in a 20-minute online survey.
- Anyone who has played a varsity sport as an undergraduate student at OSU, and they have now graduated (i.e., OSU athlete alumni). There are no other restrictions in terms of age, sex/gender, type of sport, etc.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate 2 different treatments, Mechanical Debridement (i.e., a mechanical shaver that removes areas of damaged tissue) and Radiofrequency Debridement (i.e., electrical energy that removes areas of damaged tissue), used to treat the chondral lesion in your knee.
You may be eligible for this study if you:
• Are 18 - 50 years of age
• Suspected chondral damage in the following locations where debridement is indicated:
o Medial femoral condyle
o Lateral femoral condyle
• 1 or more chondral lesion(s) as noted on MRI
• Previous chondral treatment in the same compartment (prior debridement and lavage performed more than three months prior to baseline are acceptable)
• Pregnant and/or intending to become pregnant during this study period
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in your knee can be injured and treated with an ACL reconstruction surgery. An ACL reconstruction may impact function, muscle strength, the way you move, and knee joint health. However, outcomes at 2 years after ACL reconstructions in young persons are not well-understood. Findings from this study will provide information regarding the clinical, function, muscle strength, and movement patterns after ACL injury and reconstruction to help inform physicians and physical therapists who work with these patients.
You may be eligible if:
1. You are between the ages of 16-35 years old
2. 2 years (+/- 8 months) status post ACL Reconstruction
3. Regularly participated in physical activity prior to their ACL injury
To collect outcomes data for patients undergoing the Subchondroplasty® (SCP®) Procedure in the hip. Outcomes to be assessed include medication usage, pain, function, activity levels and patient satisfaction.
• 18 years of age or older
• Subchondral bone defect(s) in the hip (femoral head, femoral neck and/or acetabulum) has been confirmed via MRI or x-ray.
• Other requirements reviewed by the physician.
• Collapse of the subchondral bone
This study is designed to capture information about your spine. We will collect information from wearable sensors while you move your low back and neck. We will also collect a series of questionnaires and information from your medical record that related to your spine health. We want to compare the health history and motion capabilities of participants with healthy spines to participants with back and neck pain disorders. We believe that capturing and analyzing this information together will advance our understanding of low back and neck disorders and help develop healthcare applications, tools, or devices that improve the way we prevent, evaluate, and treat spine disorders. You will complete up to 8 visits and participate in the study for up to 5 years.
To participate, you must meet the following criteria: -Age 18-80 -Able to speak, read, and understand English -Able to stand for 20 minutes Please let us know if you have any of the following as you may not be eligible to participate (not a complete list): -Currently pregnant -Currently seeing or planning to see a medical provider for low back or neck pain -History of chronic low back or neck pain lasting longer than 3 months -Severe back or spine curvature (example – scoliosis) -Current condition requiring a back brace -History of spine surgery -History of brain or spine cancer -Open wounds on back or neck -Current spine infection
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate an investigational procedure for treatment of damage to the cartilage in your knee, also called a defect or lesion, which requires repair. If eligible, you will receive one of two possible arthoscophy procedures. You may be assigned to receive the study procedure to implant Hyalofast® scaffold in your knee together with cells from your own bone marrow, called Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate, or BMAC. Bone marrow is the substance found inside your bones that among other things helps to make blood cells. The other possible procedure is called Microfracture and is one of the current standard of care options to treat your condition.
-Ages 18 to 60.
-Patient’s body mass index (BMI) is <35 kg/m2
-Patient has a symptomatic lesion of the femoral condyle (medial and/or lateral) or femoral trochlea that is between 1--6 cm2 on screening images confirmed by the independent radiologist
-Patient is using only nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or acetaminophen/paracetamol during the month before signing the informed consent form to treat knee pain
-Patient is willing to use other pain medication rather than NSAIDS for 6 months post-surgery (e.g. acetaminophen, or narcotic analgesics, if prescribed). Post-surgical use of aspirin for clot prevention is acceptable.
-Patient is willing to restrict pain medication after 6 months post-surgery to NSAIDs or acetaminophen/paracetamol only through the end of the trial
-No history of previous microfracture or other cartilage repair procedure on study knee
-Not currently pregnant or expecting to become pregnant in the next 12 months
-No diagnosis of advanced osteoarthritis
A study for those who will (have undergone) the Subchondroplasty (SCP) procedure for their knee. SCP is a procedure performed on subjects who have bone marrow lesions(BMLs). BMLs are subchondral defects in the bone, also called Insufficiency Fractures. This follow-up study will collect information on the short- and long-term safety and effectiveness of the SCP procedure.

- Considered to be a candidate for SCP procedure by your surgeon
- Have agreed to undergo the SCP procedure or has already undergone the procedure
- Willing and able to sign a written consent form
- Has the ability and the willingness to contribute follow-up outcome data
This registry will collect outcomes data of patients undergoing shoulder surgery with Dr. Jonathan Barlow or Dr. Julie Bishop. The purpose of this registry is to provide a way to collect and store data for patients undergoing shoulder surgery to support the conduct of future research in an effort to improve patient outcomes.
- A patient undergoing surgery with Dr Jonathan Barlow or Dr Julie Bishop (will be asked to enroll once the clinical decision has been made to proceed with surgery)
- 18 to 89 years old
