Clinical Research

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in our clinical research trials!

The providers at Denver Back Pain Specialists are pleased to announce our increased involvement in clinical research. We participate in clinical trials to offer novel treatments for our patients with low back pain, joint issues, and a variety of other conditions. These treatments can often offer benefits to patients who are affected by difficult-to-treat musculoskeletal diseases. We carefully select which studies we will participate in based on sound scientific principles, strong safety profiles and promising efficacy results. Similarly, patients are evaluated on an individual basis for candidacy in our trials, based on eligibility criteria as well as treatment history and the unique needs of each patient.

Please explore this section or give us a call at 303-327-5511  ext. 319 to learn more and see if you are a candidate for treatment through one of our studies (see menu of active clinical trials to the left).

Research Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What are clinical trials? Also called research studies, clinical trials are conducted according to a very specific and FDA-approved plan to help find new treatments and improve health.
  • Why are clinical trials done? Clinical trials are important in determining whether a new drug or device is effective and safe to use.
  • What does it cost? There is no out-of-pocket cost for participating in a clinical trial. Insurance is not required, and the sponsor of the clinical trial will pay for all of your study-related care.
  • What does my participation entail? You will need to provide study staff with a thorough history of your symptoms, attend all of your study appointments, notify study staff of any changes to your health, medications, or development of new symptoms, follow instructions given to you by study staff, and let them know if you no longer wish to participate in the study.
  • What happens if I change my mind and no longer want to be in the study? Simply notify a study staff member of your decision. Participation in any clinical research trial is completely voluntary, so you are free to withdraw at any time, for any reason. We would be happy to still see you as a patient outside of the study, and your decision to withdraw will have no impact on your medical care.
