Mayo Clinic surgeons are among the world's most experienced, performing some of the world's first open-heart surgeries in children using a heart-lung machine developed here. Mayo medical professionals and researchers continue to develop new ECMO innovations to improve care and patient outcomes.
Mayo Clinic doctors trained in heart conditions (cardiologists), heart surgery (cardiac surgeons), lung conditions (pulmonologists), transplantation and critical care medicine study extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. You may have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials. Learn more about cardiovascular research in the Cardiovascular Research Center.
