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.

- 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.
