Hughston Research and Education Research Services Overview

For companies seeking regulatory approval for new drugs, medical devices and treatments in orthopaedic medicine, the Hughston Foundation’s research department is one of the most sought-after sites for clinical trials. Our experience and reputation for meticulous attention to detail means that trials are conducted in full compliance with the protocol and regulatory requirements, including detailed documentation.


Our long history in orthopaedics and sports medicine has created an extensive patient database covering a wide range of conditions. This resource not only allows us to easily recruit candidates for specific trials, it offers the opportunity for long-term retrospective and follow-up studies.


All research studies conducted by the Hughston Foundation are reviewed and monitored by the Hughston Institutional Review Board (IRB).
