Clinical Research Trials

Improving the lives of women - now and in the future.

Our Clinical Research department is now enrolling participants in investigational drug studies in the following areas:

  • Vulvovaginal atrophy and pain with intercourse in post-menopausal women
  • Treatment of hot flashes in menopausal women
  • Heavy bleeding and fibroids
  • Vaginal ring birth control
  • Patch birth control
  • Novasure endometrial ablation after Essure tubal sterilization

Better research, clinical studies and medication advancement greatly improves our understanding of cause and effect, allowing us to live healthier lifestyles.
Before a medication is made available to the general public, it must undergo stringent clinical testing. Pharmaceutical companies do years of laboratory research and then must apply to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in order to conduct clinical trials and research studies on humans.

Clinical trials and research studies are essential to the development of new medications and treatments. Clinical trials generally fall into one of the following categories:
Treatments – Testing new treatments or comparing treatments.
Prevention – Research and testing on how to prevent healthy people from getting a condition or to stop it from recurring.
Screening – Clinical trials can detect a certain disease or condition.
Quality of Life – Clinical trials and research studies’ goal is to improve the comfort and everyday life for those suffering with chronic illnesses.
Genetics – The role of genes in an illness.

Clinical trial volunteers are often suffering with pain, discomfort or inconvenient symptoms that hinder their daily activities. By participating in clinical trials and research studies, patients will be helping develop promising new treatments, while at the same time, possibly reducing their own discomfort and symptoms.

There are several benefits associated with medial research studies; some of those benefits include:

  • Possibility of taking advantage of new treatments.
  • Have access to top quality medical care from our board certified physicians and experienced research staff.
  • Offer valuable new insights into their condition and help future patients.
  • Receive close monitoring of their condition throughout the study.
  • Take a more active role in their healthcare.
  • To promote the interests of persons who are suffering or have suffered from serious or long-term diseases or disorders.
  • To encourage the provision of the resources necessary for medical research to be conducted.
  • To promote appropriate legislation relating to medicine and medical research.
  • Compensation for study participation and medical services
    • If you are interested in participating in a current study or want to be notified of future studies please contact our Research Department.
