Mayo Clinic research scientists and doctors are continually improving spinal fusion techniques. Research by Mayo specialists covers a wide range of areas, including high-tech imaging systems to guide surgeons during spinal fusion, minimally invasive surgical techniques, biomechanical enhancements for screws and hooks used in spinal fusion, and better techniques for complicated spinal reconstructions. Scientists in the laboratories for Biomechanics and Motion Analysis and the Center for Regenerative Medicine are active in a number of areas of spine research.
