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 specialists are currently studying the long-term outcomes in function for people who've experienced a stroke and get an early tracheostomy versus those who have prolonged use of a breathing tube placed through the mouth into the trachea (orotracheal intubation).
