Purpose of Study 

The specific question the investigators will seek to answer is: can the Reamer Irrigator Aspirator (RIA) provide a bone graft source for the treatment of nonunions that is equally effective to Autogenous Iliac Crest Bone Graft (AICBG) while resulting in a decreased amount of post-operative pain and a lower rate of complications?
