Featured In Orthopaedics

Joseph Schwab, MD, discusses how the Mass General Spine Center is utilizing machine learning algorithms to help patients understand their risks and outcomes for surgical procedures with a personalized approach.

Featured In Neuroscience

Mass General has developed a genotype-targeted therapy for glioma, designed to be given at the tumor site during surgery, and an accompanying rapid diagnostic.

Featured In Cardiovascular

Physicians at Mass General recently became the first team in New England to perform a transcatheter mitral valve replacement in a non-calcified mitral valve.

Featured In Orthopaedics

Two-stage exchange arthroplasty is extremely costly and associated with high morbidity. Is it possible to identify patients at high-risk of failure?

Featured In Neuroscience

Joshua Roffman, MD, MMSc, discusses his recent work investigating folic acid’s potential neuroprotective effects that may guard against schizophrenia development.

The Latest Neurosciences Advances

After acute ischemic stroke, the speed of infarct growth varies among patients. Mass General researchers and colleagues investigated whether patients who have salvageable brain tissue, based on imaging, can benefit from endovascular thrombectomy beyond the recommended six-hour limit.

A key quest in psychiatric research is the search for objective ways to diagnose major mental illnesses. Mass General researchers are exploring whether functional MRI can be used to distinguish between bipolar disorder and unipolar depression.
