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.

Dr Andrish is wonderful. He is very informative and talks about long term treatmemt and concern. Thanks to him I'm working out again and loosing weight. My injections of Steroids in my knee last me about 6 months which is awesome. also flowing a diet that helps to reduce inflamation which dr Andrish encourages!

Dr. Andrish was the most involved caring doctor I have ever talked to. He took about 15 minutes to explain the knee in general and my knee in particular, he even drew me pictures to make sure I understood my personal situation. He referred me to another doctor associated with cleveland clinic, since he doesn't do the surgery he thinks I need. I am forever indebted to Dr Andrish!!!

There is not another physician I trust more than Dr. Andrish. He has cared for my family through multiple knee procedures, over many years. He takes time to fully explain the decisions, the options, and he clearly answers every question. Dr. Andrish so fully includes the patient in the decision, it almost feels like a partnership! He took the time to send a MyChart message with information discussed during the follow up visit - just one more example of his outstanding patient care! I have and will continue to highly recommend Dr. Andrish.
