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 3/4/2020, Dr. LaPlante 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.

I always have a good experience when visiting this office. The staff is always polite and attentive. Dr. Laplante is amazing and a very kind person.

I cannot express how thankful I am for Dr. Laplante. I have experienced chronic pelvic pain along with a laundry list of other symptoms. Dr. Laplante took the time to provide and explain multiple treatment options and allowed me to ask all of my questions (which she answered thoroughly without seeming annoyed). I finally feel like I found a doctor who truly cares about helping me get my life back. She is very compassionate and actually listens to me. We need more doctors like Dr. Laplante and I will refer any woman I know to her. I will be a patient of hers for as long as she is practicing. Thank you Dr. Laplante for restoring my fight and my hope!

I had never seen the doctor before and I had quite a bit of anxiety. She was amazing in every aspect. She took her time, walked me slowly through everything and I honestly cannot wait to see her again. Not many people can say that about their doctor, let alone their gynecologist.
