Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 5/3/2016, Dr. Sutter has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

I came to the clinic because I had a problem with extreme stiffness of my right knee due to a fall which I already had two surgeries. Many x-rays were taken and the diagnosis was I had arthritis in both hips and the knee.I was given a needle in my hip which reduced the pain quite well. Dr Peck used a machine to direct exactly where the needle should be inserted. I was then told to go for rehab. which I did. Meanwhile, the problem I came in for was not really addressed. The extreme stiffness in my knee. I also received an injection to my knee by Dr. Sutter. She did not use the machine to make sure the needle was going to the right place. Needless to say, there was no improvement. I was told for certain medicines to work, you must hit the exact spot. Obviously this did not happen. I was told I might need a hip replacement because the problem with my knee came from my hip. This does not make sense to me, since I was not complaining of pain in my knee just extreme stiffness which at time made walking a little difficult. I will not be returning to the clinic because the problem that I first came in for, really was not addressed. I was told I need injections of Hyalgan which lubricates the knee to reduces the stiffness. However this is done with a machine to direct the medicine to the exact spot. This was not done at the clinic. I feel this is a wonderful facility, unfortunately things did not work out for me.
