Patient Care

Patients with full-leg amputation regain independence and mobility through new prosthetic technology

Mayo specialists offer custom-fitted prostheses with microprocessor-controlled hip and knee joints that help patients with hip disarticulation and hemipelvectomy amputation due to tumors or traumatic injury walk again.

Restorative interventions help maximize functional outcomes for patients with SCI

In Mayo's spinal cord injury program, patients with traumatic SCI and nontraumatic spinal cord dysfunction access coordinated, specialized care designed to help them achieve optimal levels of wellness, quality of life and re-entry into the community.

Treating infants with head shape asymmetry

Head shape asymmetries tend to be easy to treat, but timing is essential. Treatment needs to occur while the skull is still rapidly growing and before the bones of a baby's skull have fused and the soft spots have closed.


Study examines the prevalence of mild and serious TBI in both sexes and all age groups
Researchers applied a refined system for classifying injuries caused by force to the head and found that the incidence of traumatic brain injury is likely greater than has been estimated by the CDC.
