Hospital and Doctor Visits 


Orthopedic Surgery


The Mayo Clinics have 95 doctors who specialize in orthopedic surgery and is one of the largest and most experienced practices in the United States. 

Rochester has 67 of the 95. 

Jacksonville has 14 of the 95. 

Phoenix has 14 of the 95. 

All three hospitals and doctors work together and are on salary and are not competing. So if a surgery when a patient were in Phoenix or Jacksonville could be better served at another hospital, the patient would be sent to the another hospital.


Three of the 14 doctors at Phoenix stood out for knee surgery:

Anikar Chhabra with 80 publications 

Henry D. Clarke  with 55 publications

Mark J. Spangehl with 89 publications

Updated Classification System Captures Many More People at Risk for Heart Attack - 2017 from Johns Hopkins Medicine Full text

But based on data from a 2012 study by researchers in Denmark that looked at survival rates in 4,711 women and 6,512 men after analyzing the severity of blocked arteries through coronary angiography, the Johns Hopkins and Mount Sinai specialists say there is evidence that people with less than 50 percent blockage of their heart’s arteries, with so-called nonobstructive heart disease, are at just about the same risk of death due to heart attack, stroke or heart failure (congestive heart disease) — about 14 percent over five years for men and 8 percent for women — as people with an artery with a 50 percent or greater blockage.
