Regenerative Medicine in Patient Care
Regenerative medicine-based services are available to patients, including a consult service and one of the country's largest transplant centers.
Regenerative Medicine Consult Service
Patients at Mayo Clinic are becoming increasingly interested in whether there are any regenerative medicine applications suitable for their conditions. To meet this interest, the Regenerative Medicine Consult Service was launched within the Mayo Clinic William J. von Liebig Center for Transplantation and Clinical Regeneration in 2011.
Simple hip decompression
Teams composed of bone specialists, biologists and engineers at Mayo Clinic are investigating the potential of simple hip decompression, a new regenerative technique, for patients with early-stage osteonecrosis of the hip.
William J. von Liebig Center for Transplantation and Clinical Regeneration
Transplant medicine laid much of the groundwork for the field of regenerative medicine. Today, transplantation (replacement) is one of the three approaches being studied and applied by the Center for Regenerative Biotherapeutics to restore tissue and organ function.
Mayo Clinic has the largest and most experienced transplant practice in the United States. In total, Mayo's campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota perform more than 1,500 solid organ and bone marrow transplants each year. Staff members skilled in more than a dozen specialties work together to ensure quality care and successful recovery.
