Baby Hip Instability and Dysplasia - Mayo Clinic

Few moments are as joyful as the one when you bring a brand new baby into the world. But imagine the worry you'd feel if right after birth you learned something was wrong. Hip instability is an issue in approximately one in 1-hundred births. Most cases resolve on their own, but some don't. Mayo Clinic doctors say if you treat hip instability as soon as possible after birth, most kids grow up with healthy, normal hips. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0HWHx1XLMc

3D Printer Helps Hips - Mayo Clinic

Joint replacements have been around for a long time. Most people with conditions such as osteoarthritis can expect good results if they have one. But what about those who have complicated cases or unusual deformities that a standard replacement can't fix? In the past that's meant few options. Now, doctors at Mayo Clinic are using 3D printers to enable customized joint replacement surgeries. Many patients, who were out of luck, can now have a successful surgery and better quality of life. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYq1zNKFcdI

Hockey Coach Gets Hip - Mayo Clinic

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, close to 330,000 hip replacements are performed each year in the U.S. Many are done to ease the pain of osteoarthritis, also called wear and tear arthritis. And most patients are over age 60. But that's' changing, as younger patients are opting for surgery so they can stay active. Experts at Mayo Clinic say an alternative approach to standard hip replacement helps stop the pain and gets many people back to their normal activities faster. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ab8QuEpxzzw

5 Years on a VAD - Mayo Clinic

You have six months. Maybe a year. That was reality for heart failure patient Verna Schrombeck. Her condition had deteriorated to the point where treatment no longer helped. Because of her age, she was not a candidate for a heart transplant. Doctors at Mayo Clinic implanted a device that would hopefully keep Verna alive, at least a little while. Years later she shares her story. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4dAKfVeKDA
