Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast: Surgical practice during COVID-19

3

The COVID-19 pandemic forced elective surgeries to be delayed while hospitals prepared for the potential influx of COVID-19 patients. Thanks to effective efforts to flatten the curve and the lifting of executive stay-at-home orders, Mayo Clinic is again able to see patients for elective surgeries. What’s different for patients when having surgery during the coronavirus era? And what extra steps is Mayo Clinic taking to keep patients and staff safe?

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Michael Kendrick, chair of the Department of Surgery at Mayo Clinic, explains how surgical practice remains safe in the time of COVID-19.

This interview was recorded on May 12, 2020.
