You may be approached by an anesthesiologist about participating in a research study. While the Department of Anesthesiology hopes eligible patients will consider participating in clinical research, participation is completely voluntary.
All clinical research projects at HSS have been approved by our Institutional Review Board, which ensures that all research does not have any unreasonable risks.
Research identifies ways to improve the Department of Anesthesiology's approach to anesthesia and pain control. By participating in research, patients who are eligible can help us improve our practice of anesthesia for future patients.
