Patient Care

Fractures around joint replacement arthroplasties can be treated in a single procedure
Mayo surgeons go beyond typical Level I trauma care, providing efficient treatment for patients of all ages with complex injuries.

Robotic arm enhances precision of full knee replacement
Accurate balance of ligaments and soft tissue is key to successful full knee replacement. Robot-assisted technology provides intraoperative information to help achieve that balance, increasing patients' satisfaction with the procedure.


Mayo's antibiotic spacers allow maximum use of infected joints during treatment
Mayo manufactures antibiotic spacers at the time of surgery. This individualized approach enhances mobility while medication clears the infection.

Elbow replacement technique can provide long-term treatment option
A prosthetic elbow developed at Mayo Clinic has minimal rates of revision, offering a stable and durable joint replacement for people with debilitating elbow injuries.

In-office knee arthroscopy avoids anesthesia

An enhanced method of in-office imaging can provide more-accurate views than MRI, especially for people who have had previous knee surgery.
