Clinical Trials

The Department of Surgery doesn’t just excel in the operating room. Through our extensive and innovative research programs, we are also focused on the development of new techniques and therapies that promote better outcomes and improve the quality of life for patients following surgery. 

As part of that goal, the department’s surgeons are involved in groundbreaking clinical trials. In addition to their research value, clinical trials may also give patients access to new treatments that are not available anywhere else.
