Welcome, and thank you for your interest in our clinical research trials!
The providers at the Denver Spine and Pain Institute are very pleased to be able to offer clinical research trials to our patients. We have been involved in research since 2012, and we participate in clinical trials to offer novel treatments for our patients with low back pain, joint issues, and a variety of other conditions. These treatments can often offer benefits to patients who are affected by difficult-to-treat musculoskeletal diseases. We carefully select which studies we will participate in based on sound scientific principles, strong safety profiles and promising efficacy results. Similarly, patients are evaluated on an individual basis for candidacy in our trials, based on eligibility criteria as well as treatment history and the unique needs of each patient.
Please ask your provider or call the Research Department at 303-327-5511 ext. 319 to learn more and see if you are a candidate for treatment through one of our studies.
Also called research studies, clinical trials are conducted according to a very specific and FDA-approved plan to help find new treatments and improve health.
Clinical trials are important in determining whether a new drug or device is effective and safe to use.
Costs may vary from study to study. Ask your provider or our research team about the costs associated with the study you are interested in. Often, there is no out-of-pocket cost for participating in a clinical trial, and the sponsor of the clinical trial will pay for all of your study-related care.
You will need to provide study staff with a thorough history of your symptoms, attend all of your study appointments, notify study staff of any changes to your health, medications, or development of new symptoms, follow instructions given to you by study staff, and let them know if you no longer wish to participate in the study.
Simply notify a study staff member of your decision. Participation in any clinical research trial is completely voluntary, so you are free to withdraw at any time, for any reason. We would be happy to still see you as a patient outside of the study, and your decision to withdraw will have no impact on your medical care.
