Expertise and rankings

Mayo Clinic surgeons were pioneers in the development of modern surgical techniques and prosthetics for hip replacement surgery. (9) More than 1,500 hip replacements occur at Mayo Clinic annually.

  • Learning from experience. The Mayo Clinic Total Joint Registry contains information on every joint replacement surgery performed at Mayo Clinic. The registry helps Mayo Clinic doctors determine which surgical technique and prosthesis type will be the most effective for you.
  • Research advances. Mayo researchers have been instrumental in developing, modifying and patenting new prosthesis designs.
  • Innovative pain management. Mayo Clinic doctors use new combinations of regional anesthesia and pain relief techniques that can reduce the need for general anesthesia and intravenous narcotic pain medications, which can speed recovery.

Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, Mayo Clinic in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, and Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, are ranked among the Best Hospitals for orthopedics by U.S. News & World Report.
