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 8/24/2021, Dr. Wilkie 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.

My husband accompanied me to this second meeting with Dr. Wilkie to go over the need for surgery on my left knee, where part of my prosthetic is failing. He answered all of our questions about the need for and the type of surgery. He also re-x-rayed my left knee to see if there had been any changes since my first meeting and x-rayed my right knee as well to see if it held any surprises, which it did not. We both felt very comfortable with Dr. Wilkie.

dr Wilke was very professional and easy to talk to. he listened and advised the options I had for my knees . there were three: leave them alone and take my pain meds, knee shots and lastly surgery. he said I could take one shot and see if it helps after I told him I was scared of the shots. he assured me he would numb the knee. I said ok and he gave me the shot which wasn't bad. I am calling this week to get the other knee done before holiday.I was concerned as I had Hatherill as my doctor, but he is very nice
