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.

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.

Literally, the best medical experience from start to finish that I've ever received. It was definitely difficult to get an appointment with Dr. Kantaras but once that got sort out, the professionalism and personable treatment, that goes from Dr. Kantaras, nurses, anesthesiology, everyone, was second to none. I drive an hour for these appointments because I was not satisfied with my care In Avon CC's, #WORTHIT hands-down.

Amazing experience. Even my mother who tagged along said she would recommend anybody to make the drive (and she just had meniscus repair in Twinsburgh CC 5 weeks ago). Only downfall of Dr. Kantaras is his insane intelligence and using big diagnosis words that I needed to be dumbed down for me!
