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 work to improve catheter-based diagnostic tests and treatments and find new uses for them. Doctors in Mayo Clinic's Cardiovascular Research Center conduct research on evolving technology and techniques to improve quality of care.

Some areas of research include:

  • Catheter-based techniques for nonsurgical heart valve replacement
  • Catheter-based techniques to close the left atrial appendage to reduce the risk of stroke
  • Cardiac catheterization to treat atrial fibrillation
  • Cell and gene therapy to treat coronary artery disease
  • New devices and technologies to diagnose and treat heart disease
