Support Surgical Innovation

Physicians, scientists, nurses and other allied health staff in the Surgery Research Center are making strides toward developing new technology to transform the way patients receive surgical care. Support of surgical innovation by generous donors is critical for continued development, testing and application of these innovations into routine surgical practice.

Benefactors have been a key part of scientific discovery at Mayo Clinic for more than 100 years. Government funding alone isn't enough to sustain the resources needed for cutting-edge discoveries in surgical care, and generally does not support early device development. Benefactor gifts, in any amount, help Mayo Clinic continue to advance surgical innovation and ultimately offer the best care available to patients seeking complex surgical care.
