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 10/16/2020, Dr. Krpata 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.

Dr.Krpata was very nice and seemed genuinely interested in getting to the bottom of things, but unfortunately I probably am not a candidate for more surgery.

Dr. Krypata was great. I marked "fair" for # 3 and 5 due to the fact that scar tissue and entrapped nerves don't appear to have a "1 size fits all" treatment option or explanation.

Dr Krapata and his staff's personnel were very polite and informed me of what surgery I needed and answered all of my concerns. looking forward to my surgery, I have been to a lot of hospitals, but nothing compares to the Cleveland Clinic

I am totally impressed with the rapid response I received back from Dr. Krpata. I sent my records to him on a Friday and received a phone call from him that following Tuesday. I knew I was very ill. He took the time to review my CT and MRI scans that three other hospitals failed to diagnosis. I did have an appointment with. He was professional and knowlegeable. He was able to answer all my questions and was straight forward. I highly respect him!
