Clinic Research: Growing and Thriving

Campbell Clinic Foundation staff facilitate hundreds of clinical research studies, demonstrating Campbell’s unwavering commitment to innovation and patient well-being. Since 2015, nearly 800 studies have been conducted! Campbell Clinic physicians serve as principal investigators in diverse studies, from industry-sponsored clinical trials to multi-center research studies to study groups. Through this research, new treatments, techniques and insights are found to better serve patients.

Research activities also engage Campbell Clinic residents and fellows, medical students and industry and academic partners. Results are shared with the world through presentations and posters at academic conferences, publications and health outreach.

Research Collaboration: Across the U.S. and Around the World

Thanks to robust industry and education partners, our Foundation teams are reducing pain, enhancing mobility and improving quality of life for orthopaedic patients everywhere. Currently, the Foundation has more than 160 active studies underway across all sub-specialties, and we engage thousands of patients in our research. We are grateful to have such a dedicated, passionate team to drive new knowledge and improve patient care.
