Musculoskeletal Conditions

Musculoskeletal degeneration and complications from injuries, diseases and other conditions are becoming more prevalent as the population lives longer. Despite monumental advances, many of today's treatments only address the symptoms. Mayo Clinic's Orthopedics and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation departments, along with its Sports Medicine and Spine centers, are recognized around the world as leaders. Our experts offer unparalleled expertise for patients who need help now. And through large-volume clinical trials and extensive clinical practice, researchers are developing novel ways to ensure patients get the right answers the first time to live healthier, more active lives with less pain.

Our Vision

At Mayo Clinic, our teams of experts across specialties work together to develop tailored treatment plans that restore movement and function, offering both surgical and nonoperative interventions to optimize performance and reduce risk of reinjury. Basic science researchers work closely with clinical partners to focus on sports injuries, back and neck pain, osteoarthritis, bone healing, and regenerative medicine.

Mayo's work in musculoskeletal regeneration offers the promise of reparative therapies for patients with conditions of the skeleton and its associated connective tissues and muscles. Additionally, our research in regenerative medicine is paving the way for the use of human cells to restore healthy function for the spine.

The Solution

We have the potential to revolutionize care for patients with musculoskeletal and spine concerns. As this science progresses, previously unimaginable treatment options will transform how Mayo Clinic meets patient needs.

With recent scientific and technological advances, Mayo is on the brink of new discoveries that will have vast implications across the global research community. But for the patients, caregivers and families living with incurable conditions today, answers cannot come soon enough. We seek to move innovation to impact, faster. Mayo Clinic uses its unmatched research capabilities to discover and translate new scientific knowledge into first-of-its-kind treatments and lifesaving cures.

Rare conditions are not rare to us. Our specialized teams have more experience than anyone else in even the most serious and complicated musculoskeletal conditions. This depth of expertise, combined with our superior medical technology, gives our patients the highest possibility of a cure.

Gifts from grateful patients and families have been essential in helping Mayo Clinic strengthen its status as the global authority in medicine, advancing medical science and innovating medical education.
