Four insights:

1. Dr. Gomoll is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine and principal investigator in the study.

2. The study's goal is to compare the efficacy of the Agili-C cartilage regeneration implant to the current standard of care — microfracture and debridement.

3. Both patients had mild osteoarthritis, with one having an osteochondral defect and the other having two symptomatic lesions.

4. HSS is one of 15 sites participating in the study, which will involve 250 patients.
