The Orthopedic Infectious Diseases Focus Group specializes in the prevention and treatment of bone and joint infections, including those patients who have undergone joint replacement or bone-related or soft tissue surgery.

The Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Mayo Clinic in Rochester is a multispecialty group made up of surgical, research, and clinical consultants. Our physicians work in an integrated and cooperative group practice that strives to provide the highest-quality and cost-effective care for every patient. This department consistently maintains an excellent reputation in the orthopedic community and in consumer ratings.


In addition to caring for patients in clinical practice, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. The infectious diseases faculty demonstrates a strong interest in educating fellows and support the goals and objectives of Mayo Clinic's infectious diseases fellowships.

Many of our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. You work closely with these individuals throughout your training in the Orthopedic Infectious Diseases Fellowship. Mayo's infectious diseases faculty has established and maintained an environment of inquiry and scholarship. This fellowship has an active research component as part of the program.
