One of the goals of Dr. Millett and The Steadman Clinic is to advance the science of orthopedic surgery and sports medicine for the benefit of patients. Since physicians at The Steadman Clinic are at the leading edge of orthopaedic medicine, we frequently collaborate with outside companies for education, research, and medical advances. The Steadman Clinic and Dr. Millett support these collaborations as they foster medical breakthroughs; however we also believe that these collaborations must be disclosed.
As part of the disclosure process, this website lists Dr. Millett's collaborations with outside companies for which payments were or are being received during the prior year. The disclosures are freely provided and are updated regularly. Further information may be available on individual company websites.

By freely disclosing the collaborations between Dr. Millett and industry, we make this information available to our patients and to the public, thus creating a transparent environment for those who are interested in this information.
