Clinical Trials

Mayo Clinic offers a variety of clinical trials that are open for enrollment to participants who want to volunteer for research studies exploring diseases of the ear, nose and throat and advancing head and neck surgery.

Part of Mayo Clinic's commitment to its patients involves conducting medical research that can help people live longer, healthier lives. Clinical trials are research studies that involve volunteer participants. These studies help physician-scientists better understand, diagnose, treat and prevent diseases and conditions.

Mayo Clinic's clinical trials related to otolaryngology and head and neck surgery include studies on cochlear implants, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, head and neck surgery, hearing loss and hearing aids, laryngology and voice, pediatric otolaryngology, and many more. Mayo Clinic also has thousands of other active clinical trials and research studies, and it coordinates national and international clinical trials with other medical institutions from around the world.
