Departments and specialties

Mayo Clinic has one of the largest and most experienced practices in the United States, with campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota. Staff skilled in dozens of specialties work together to ensure quality care and successful recovery.


Mayo Clinic researchers study craniosynostosis and other neurological conditions. Considerable progress has been made in understanding the genetic causes of syndromic craniosynostosis, but the causes of most nonsyndromic cases remain unknown.

Other research at Mayo Clinic involves the use of MRI scans rather than CT scans for diagnosis and treatment of craniosynostosis and strategies for minimizing blood transfusion during surgery.
