Although the AJRR-C itself does not provide medical treatment, patients and medical professionals can request appointments or referrals to Mayo Clinic, a collaboration leader, for treatment and services related to total joint replacement. The collaborative works closely with Mayo Clinic's Department of Orthopedic Surgery to develop and apply new solutions for patients that improve healing, speed rehabilitation and improve outcomes.
Mayo Clinic works with hundreds of insurance companies and is an in-network provider for millions of people. In most cases, Mayo Clinic doesn't require a physician referral. Some insurers require referrals or may have additional requirements for certain medical care. All appointments are prioritized based on medical need.
Appointment information is available from Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic offers a variety of clinical trials that are open for enrollment to participants who want to volunteer for research studies exploring total joint replacement (arthroplasty).
Part of Mayo Clinic's commitment to its patients involves conducting medical research that can help people live longer, healthier lives. Clinical trials are research studies that involve volunteer participants. These studies help physician-scientists better understand, diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases and conditions.
Mayo Clinic's clinical trials related to total joint replacement include studies on total joint replacement of the elbow, hip, knee and shoulder; joint replacement revisions, infection prevention, postoperative pain management, and many more.
Mayo Clinic also has thousands of other active clinical trials and research studies, and it coordinates national and international clinical trials with other medical institutions from around the world.
