Healthy Volunteers needing their hernia repaired for an anesthesia study

JBR Clinical Research is looking for volunteers 18 and older undergoing an elective surgery

Why participate in a clinical research study?

Clinical studies are the fastest and safest way to find the effectiveness of pain medications that work and are only possible with the help of participants like you. Compensation varies by study, time involved, and whether you complete all visits and procedures in the study. Every volunteer study at JBR Clinical Research is approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to make sure the risks are as low as possible and are worth any potential benefits to the volunteer.

What to expect.

JBR Clinical Research is conducting a research study for general anesthesia in adult participants undergoing an elective surgery (hernia repair) with endotracheal intubation (tube placed into windpipe through nose and mouth), lasting at least 1 hour in time.

Your participation in this study will consist of a screening visit, surgery day (within 14 days of screening), a follow-up visit (24 hours after surgery), and a follow-up phone call a week after surgery.

Qualified participants receive study related care at no cost, private room during their 6-24 hour stay, complimentary meals, around the clock nursing care, and compensation up to$450 for time and travel associated with the study.


What is a Hernia

A hernia occurs when an organ or fatty tissue squeezes through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or connective tissue called fascia. The most common types of hernias are inguinal (inner groin), incisional (resulting from an incision), femoral (outer groin), and umbilical (belly button).

What causes an Inguinal Hernia?

Ultimately, all hernias are caused by a combination of pressure and an opening or weakness of muscle or fascia; the pressure pushes an organ or tissue through the opening or weak spot. Sometimes the muscle weakness is present at birth; more often, it occurs later in life.

Hernia Treatment Options

Not all hernias need immediate surgery, but if you are experiencing pain or your hernia is growing, you may need hernia surgery. Hernias can be repaired surgically or laparoscopically (a minimally invasive procedure).
