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 3/2/2020, Dr. Kamath has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. 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.

I cannot begin to express how wonderful I was treated from the initial phone call to the Orthopedics office to set up an appointment, to the IT call to help get My Chart set up, to my virtual Doctor's visit with Dr. Kamath, to the scheduling of my upcoming surgery and finally to the registration process. Everyone I have had contact with so far at Cleveland Clinic has gone above and beyond to assist me. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Kamath accept me as a patient and "fix" me. I honestly can say I am looking forward to my surgery and visit to the Cleveland Clinic.

The meeting went very well with Dr. Kamath. Liked the virtual format. I asked a few following questions in the email on MyChart and I have not yet received a response from Dr. Kamath. The system indicated they received my questions and he would be responding within 3 days. It has now been 8 days and no response yet. Thanks, Laura
