Physician scientists in the Department of Urology at IU School of Medicine are contributing substantially to the advancement of patient care in urologic cancer, pediatric reconstruction, stone treatments and other areas.
The Department of Urology participates in clinical trials that explore new therapeutic treatments for urologic problems. Participating in clinical trials offers patients the opportunity to receive new treatments while contributing to the future of health care. Patients who participate in clinical trials receive especially close, personalized care by a specialized team of urologists and clinical research coordinators. Participation in these studies may have additional benefits of free medication, study related tests, x-rays and exams or even financial compensation.
