Clinical trials are carefully designed research studies that answer specific questions about the safety and effectiveness of preventive techniques, medications, treatments, therapies or surgical techniques. Participation in a clinical trial is strictly voluntary.
Many studies that are developed and available are similar to treatments often referred to as the “gold standard.” Advancements in medicine may lead to improved outcomes through improved results, less discomfort, less time involved in treatment, lower cost, and/or improved safety. At Urology Associates, we are very selective about studies that we choose to offer to our patients.
Urology Associates is enrolling patients for clinical trials, in order to help our patients live longer, healthier lives.
