7 Things to know about ...

Welcome to South Lake Medical Research

Another branch at South Lake Pain Institute!

For many years, South Lake Pain Institute has been instrumental in helping to bring new treatments to the medical field.  We believe that clinical studies are not just a necessity in developing medicine, but they are also an opportunity for patients to receive cutting edge treatment that currently may not be available to the general public.

We are the link connecting pharmaceutical and research organizations to caring individuals such as yourself who want to play a part in the advancement of medicine.  As a result of our large network of qualified physicians with a diverse range of specialties, we have been able to conduct many clinical trials in a wide variety of therapeutic areas with positive results.

Please watch this video, as TJ Sharpe shares his personal story of how enrolling in a clinical trial made a difference in his life.  Perhaps it can be the same for you.  We encourage you to speak to any one of our research staff to determine if you are eligible to enroll in one of our currently open studies.
