Neurosurgery Clinical Trials
Many of the neurosurgery trials that we conduct at University Hospitals enroll patients who are in the acute stage of their disease or injury. This means that patients are enrolled while they are in the emergency room, intensive care unit, or operating room. You can read about some of these trials below and at clinicaltrials.gov. For any questions about our current neurosurgery studies, please contact Mary Andrews or Gordon Williams.
Reconnecting the Hand and Arm to the Brain (ReHAB) Study
The purpose of this study is to see if an experimental device called the ReHAB (Reconnecting the Hand and Arm to the Brain) System is safe for people. Small electrodes will be placed in the parts of the brain that control movement and sensation, and combine that with electrodes in the upper arm and shoulder to activate paralyzed muscles of the arm and hand.

Reducing Stroke Risk in African American Men (TEAM 2.0)
Dr. Martha Sajatovic and Dr. Carolyn Harmon Still are conducting a randomized controlled trial that uses a psychoeducational approach to reduce the unacceptably high rates of stroke and stroke complications in African-American men. It is a person-centered, holistic intervention that takes advantage of existing strengths in African-American families and/or communities.
