The Denver Spine and Pain Institute offers a range of clinical research studies to our patients to offer novel treatment options for conditions that can be difficult to treat. Many patients consider participating in a research study to receive care with a therapy they otherwise would not have access to, or if they feel they have exhausted all other treatment options.
We are currently participating in the following research studies:
BIORESORATIVE THERAPIES: Phase 2 Clinical Trial to Treat Chronic Lumbar Disc Disease (cLDD). This study is looking at the safety and efficacy of stem cells injected into painful lumbar discs. (Currently enrolling)
SOLIS – Interventional treatment for patients with low back and/or leg pain with no prior surgery. This study is looking at the safety and effectiveness of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) for these patients.
FAST – Interventional treatment for patients with low back and/or leg pain. This study is looking at the safety and effectiveness of a special kind of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) for these patients.
DISCovery – This is an interventional treatment involving an injection of a new medication into a herniated disc, in patients who are experiencing leg pain or sciatica.
SPRINT – This is an interventional treatment involving peripheral nerve stimulation in the treatment of chronic lower back pain.
Treatment of Leg Pain – This is a study of an oral medication, evaluating its safety and effectiveness in patients who have lumbosacral radiculopathy, or radiating leg pain, also known as sciatica.
