Research highlights from Florida – fruitful in 2019

By Advancing the Science contributor Advancing the Science contributor

Florida sunshine doesn’t just contribute to big, juicy oranges. In 2019, Florida was a hotbed of growth for Mayo Clinic Research, with 11.8% more funding leading to new capabilities such as ex vivo perfusion for lungs – leading to more available for transplant, and carbon ion therapy for cancer – currently not available to patients in the U.S. Read on for more on these and other practice transforming activities.

A better way: New options for gynecological surgery

By Elizabeth Zimmermann Elizabeth Zimmermann

A BETTER WAY A cancer procedure has better outcomes — so why isn’t everyone using it? Researchers from a national group including Sean C. Dowdy, M.D., discovered the U.S. health care system would have averted 2,300 complications among 32,000 cases if minimally invasive surgery had been used to treat endometrial cancer. As she sips warm […]
