Research and Clinical Trials for Gastrostomy
As part of our dedication to providing the most advanced procedures, Florida Hospital follows and conducts research and clinical trials on gastrostomy among other procedures. It is through this research that treatments improve and patients receive better, comprehensive care.
As only one of the different types of tube feeding procedures, gastrostomy tube has proven to be safer for some patients. It can also provide a permanent solution for patients whose condition cannot be cured.
More research is needed to reduce the risk of infection, blockages and dislodgment of the tube. Doctors continue to study the long-term effects and how instruments can be improved.
