Research and Clinical Trials
The Center for Pain and Spine is sought after as a site for advanced clinical trials due to our experience with innovative technologies, neurostimulation, and other therapies for chronic pain conditions.
As the only academic medical center in New Hampshire, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health System have many active trials that are enrolling patients across the system.
A clinical trial/study is research in which people can participate and is one of the final steps in the process to look for better ways to prevent, diagnose, or treat your condition. The purpose of a clinical trial/study is to research the effectiveness of a treatment, medication, experimental drug, or device. Many of the "standard treatments" that patients receive today were developed based on the results of previous clinical trials.
