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 5/29/2018, Dr. Lyden 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.

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.

Best doctor (*Lyden) I ever had.

It's hard to say- Dr. Lyden seems arrogant, rushes through appointments, didn't ask us if we had any questions, didn't go over test results with us, yet saved my leg. so while I appreciate that immensely, it has made it hard for us to recommend Cleveland Clinic. we heard about the world renowned care people have received but our experience wasn't that at all.

Dr. Lyden is exceptionally thorough and knowledgable. He tried hard to make things easy to understand, but he talks a little fast and I think he would be dumbfounded by how little I know about human anatomy. He was wonderful about asking if I had questions, but I only gave him a "4" because I needed a little more processing time between questions.

Dr. Lyden runs a great ship. That entire area runs like a clock. Problem I described is the J 1-4 area.

This doctor is excellent in his manner, his professionalism, and the confidence he inspires in me. He seems very well informed about my health situations and answers questions directly. I would send my family, if they suffered from similar problems to him. I think that it the highest praise that I can give a provider.
