Regenerating damaged vocal cords

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Cells from amniotic membrane show potential of repairing vocal cord injuries that don’t respond to standard care, Mayo Clinic discovered in preclinical research. The placental membrane provides a rich source of epithelial cells that could regenerate damaged tissue. Research by David Lott, M.D., a laryngeal surgeon in Arizona, found epithelial cells extracted after childbirth triggered […]

The regenerative operating room of the future

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Envisioning the future of regenerative medicine elicits images of an operating room that also is a manufacturing facility. Patients undergoing surgery could have immediate access to products biomanufactured within the operating room or even within their own bodies. Products such as tissue engineered for targeted healing or 3D-printed scaffolds that repair diseased organs, bones or […]

Triggering the body’s ability to heal

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Erwin Kruger, M.D., is motivated by challenges that evolve into enhanced clinical care. He chose the rigors of college, medical school and fellowships in the U.S. rather than an easier road to medical school straight out of high school in his native country of Nicaragua. His career path since then has been a circuitous journey […]

Regenerating the larynx: A second chance at speech

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic is leveraging advances in regenerative medicine to restore function for people whose lives have been drastically changed by a laryngectomy — surgery to remove the voice box. People without a voice box can neither speak with their natural voices nor breathe through their noses. Simple pleasures like smelling a bouquet of flowers or […]

Restoring function with larynx transplantation

By Jen Schutz Jen Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

Mayo Clinic has launched a first of its kind regenerative transplant program aimed at restoring function for people who need their larynx, or voice box, removed. In the United States about 60,000 people are living without a larynx, due to disease or trauma. The larynx is a segment of the respiratory tract located in the […]
