Our cardiovascular and cardiothoracic surgeons study how to improve the diagnosis and treatment of people with diseases of the heart, aorta and other blood vessels (cardiovascular diseases).

Mayo Clinic's research program includes laboratory and clinical research. In clinical research, our doctors study experiences of people who have had heart treatments to identify how to improve the treatments. You may have an opportunity to enroll in one of the clinic's many heart-related clinical trials.
