Scientists in Mayo Clinic's Orthopedic Surgery Research division have been involved in advances to ease pain from musculoskeletal disorders. Researchers in Mayo Clinic's Motion Analysis laboratory study how different types of ankle problems and surgeries affect a person's gait.

Specific efforts include studies of the outcomes of ankle-fusion surgery performed on both ankles, racial disparities in the use of ankle-replacement treatment and outcomes, and issues surrounding the increasing age and number of other health issues experienced by people who have ankle replacement.
