The Neuro-Informatics Laboratory of Mohamad Bydon, M.D., located on Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, is dedicated to advancing patient care and safety. Dr. Bydon and his team are performing research focused on the following areas:
- Surgical outcomes. Working closely with the Mayo Clinic Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern Center for Science of Health Care Delivery, the Neuro-Informatics Laboratory uses data analytics to track the impact and safety of surgical and nonsurgical interventions. Learn more about the lab's research on patient outcomes.
- Spinal biomechanics and novel spinal devices. The Neuro-Informatics Laboratory works with the Mayo Clinic Division of Engineering and the Orthopedic Biomechanics Laboratory to study the impact of spinal surgeries on the biomechanics of the spine and develop devices that can make spinal surgery safer and provide alternatives to fusion. Learn more about Dr. Bydon's spinal biomechanics research and his team's work on device development.
- Spinal cord injury and disk degeneration. The Neuro-Informatics Laboratory's multidisciplinary team investigates the molecular underpinnings of spinal disease with a goal of establishing new treatments. These treatments utilize stem cell interventions for patients with low back pain and spinal cord injury. Learn more about the lab's spinal regeneration research.
