Research and Clinical Trials

Physicians at Weill Cornell Orthopaedics conduct basic science research and clinical trials through their academic appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College. They are involved in a wide range of clinical trials, including trials of treatments for muscle, bone and cartilage disorders.

The benefits of participating in a clinical trial include playing a more active role in your own health care, gaining access to new research treatments before they become widely available, and helping others by contributing to medical research.

Types of Clinical Trials:

Treatment Trials

Treatment trials test experimental treatments, new combinations of drugs, or new approaches to surgery or radiation therapy.

Prevention Trials

Prevention trials look for better ways to prevent disease in people who have never had the disease or to prevent a disease from returning. These studies may look at medicines, vaccines, vitamins, minerals, or lifestyle changes.

Diagnostic Trials

Diagnostic trials study better tests or procedures for diagnosing a particular disease or condition.

Screening Trials

Screening trials study the best way to detect certain diseases or health conditions.

Quality of Life Trials

Quality of Life trials (or Supportive Care trials) investigate ways to improve comfort and the quality of life for people with a chronic illness.
