Mayo Clinic's Rochester campus has one of the largest and most experienced surgical practices in the world. The nearly 200 surgeons in Rochester cared for close to 50,000 patients in 2005.
The unusual is usual at Mayo as Mayo Clinic's reputation brings many patients with difficult problems to Rochester. Mayo's unmatched resources, the expertise of the staff and a teamwork approach help us often find answers to problems that have eluded others.
Surgery is performed at Saint Marys Hospital (including Eugenio Litta Children's Hospital) or Rochester Methodist Hospital. The 87 operating rooms are equipped with the latest diagnostic and surgical equipment.
Mayo Clinic surgeons are active in research to find new and better treatments and in education of new medical professionals.
