Spine Clinical Trials

Already a major center for spine-related treatment and research, Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Spine Health is on the forefront of developing new technologies and collaborative approaches for effectively managing back and neck disorders.

Below, find clinical trials that are currently enrolling patients:

Degenerative Disc Disease Clinical Trial
P-15 Bone Putty

Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) is a condition in which the vertebral discs begin to break down, sometimes causing excruciating pain. DDD is the underling cause of frequent neck and back pain problems in patients and often requires surgery to improve the condition. Patients who are between the ages of 18 and 70 and will be undergoing surgery for DDD could be eligible for our P-15 Bone Putty study.

Principal Investigator: Iain Kalfas, MD
