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 participated in the National Emphysema Treatment Trial, which evaluated lung volume reduction surgery to identify who is most likely to benefit from the surgery and define characteristics that predict both negative and positive surgical outcomes.
