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 study new techniques and types of robotic surgery to treat a variety of conditions. They also study the outcomes of robotic surgery compared with other techniques, such as minimally invasive surgery done by hand and conventional open surgery. Research helps you and your doctors determine the best treatment approach for your condition.
