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 doctors are conducting clinical trials of an alternative material for stabilizing compression fractures. Mayo researchers also are working to classify the types and age of fractures that are best treated by vertebroplasty as well as studying long-term results of the procedure.


See a list of publications by Mayo authors on vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
