We have extensive experience with clinical research.
Our research department has worked on more than 200 clinical trials over the past 20 years. Many of today’s state-of-the-art diagnostic tests and treatments for prostate cancer were investigated right here in Lancaster.
Our team of physicians and research coordinators is dedicated to offering our community with the opportunity to access the latest advancements in urological care through clinical trials before these therapies are available to the general public as standard of care. All studies are conducted according to policies set forth by the Food and Drug Administration with a paramount emphasis on patient safety. Our team carefully monitors each patient throughout the entire process.
A clinical trial is a research study designed to test new medications, treatments or devices. The study protocol can vary. Typically a majority of patients undergo the new treatment technique, and those outcomes can be compared with patients who underwent placebo (no active treatment) or standard treatments. Participation is completely voluntary. Only eligible patients may enroll after being carefully informed of all possible risks and benefits. Patients may opt to withdraw from the study at any time for any reason. There is no financial cost to the patient for the new medications or treatment techniques.
Why enroll in a clinical trial?
- Chance to gain access to a new medication or treatment technique

- Reassurance from close and careful monitoring
- Satisfaction of helping future patients
- No cost for any medications, testing or procedures related to the study
