Clinical Research Programs

We are excited to offer patients ongoing access to new therapies to treat bone, joint and muscle conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, and autoimmune diseases through our on-site Clinical Research Center. This unique feature of our clinic plays a significant role in our outstanding abilities to provide our patients a comprehensive diagnosis and individualized care.

Our Research Directors, Dr. Heather Kramm and Dr. Jeff Peterson, are board certified rheumatologist.
