Yes: Occasionally studies are done which includes the delivery of care for the volunteers. Best examples deal with liposuction studies dealing with stem cells. Patients have volume of fat removed, and the fat studied in a laboratory. The patient does get either reimbursement or no cost surgery treatments.
