Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic care team

Mayo Clinic's MGUS teams are led by hematologists and include other specialists as needed, such as nephrologists in cases of kidney failure and cardiology in cases of amyloid involving the heart.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

Mayo Clinic has a long history of researching this condition, so its specialists have extensive experience distinguishing MGUS from related disorders. That's important in determining prognosis and treatment.
