Vascular Surgery Clinical Trials

<P>The Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery is committed to fulfilling Stony Brook's mission of excellence in research, and to advancing scientific knowledge to improve patient care and population health.</P>
<P><STRONG>Participation in our clinical trials is always completely voluntary</STRONG>, and never interferes with the normal standards for patient care.</P>
<P>Our clinical trials enable us to use, in addition to established therapies, the newest and most advanced technologies and treatments — long before they are available to other physicians.</P>
<P><STRONG>Based on their excellent surgical results, o</STRONG><STRONG>ur vascular specialists have been selected to participate in national multi-center clinical trials:</STRONG></P>

<LI><SPAN>Stroke prevention</SPAN></LI>
<LI><SPAN>Treatment of venous thromboembolism</SPAN></LI>
<LI><SPAN>Wound care</SPAN></LI>
<LI><SPAN>New treatment modalities for venous insufficiency</SPAN></LI></UL>
<P>Patients participate in our clinical trials only after they receive a complete explanation of their options from their surgeon and surgical team.</P>
