Patient Care

RPA provides an excellent option for patients with small, benign neoplasms

Retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy (RPA) allows direct access to the retroperitoneum and adrenal gland without the need for intra-abdominal organ mobilization. RPA involves placing the patient in facedown position. The adrenal gland is approached posteriorly beneath the 12th rib.

Mayo Clinic Cystic Fibrosis Center specializes in the care of pediatric and adult patients

Cystic fibrosis is the most common genetic disease of Caucasians. Expected survival has increased to 38-plus years, thanks to adherence to recommended therapeutic strategies such as aggressive management of chronic airway infection and nutritional deficiencies.
