Texas Institute for Hip & Knee Surgery
The Texas Institute for Hip & Knee Surgery, in alignment with Orthopaedic Specialists of Austin, strives to explore the most innovative and minimally invasive treatments available for hips and knees. With multiple ongoing clinical research projects, Dr. David Dodgin and Dr. E. Matthew Heinrich are in tune with the latest and most effective technologies and techniques on the market today. Here, at the Texas Institute for Hip & Knee Surgery, we recognize the importance of clinical research in order to ensure the sustainability of medical advancements throughout the World for generations to come. Our research patients have the unique opportunity to directly support this mission while gaining a deep understanding of their own progress after their surgical procedure.
All studies performed at the Texas Institute for Hip & Knee Surgery are thoroughly reviewed and approved by an Institutional Review Board prior to the enrollment of any patient. This board ensures our research projects are FDA compliant and that the rights of all involved patients are upheld to the fullest extent. Descriptions of each trial performed at the Texas Institute for Hip & Knee Surgery will be available upon request.
What to expect as a research subject participant:
Each patient who qualifies as a potential research participant will be walked through an informed consent process by a member of our clinical research team. Your decision to participate in a study is completely voluntary; and if enrolled, you may decide to withdraw at any point without consequence. Throughout your participation, our clinical research team will be there for you every step of the way, providing extensive and personalized follow-ups aimed at meeting your individual needs as well as those needs for the study. Some studies involve nothing more than documenting routine follow-up for a particular procedure, while other studies ensure more detailed and long term follow-up and health monitoring are carried out in order to detect small changes which may occur with a particular technology. If you have any questions related to research studies at TIHKS please contact our Clinical Research Coordinator: Jake Rabin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
