Groundbreaking research and advanced treatments

If you have a serious medical problem or need treatment for a specific medical disorder, you want a hospital that’s dedicated to that condition. At MU Health Care, you’ll find help, expertise and hope.

Our physicians conduct advanced research so you receive breakthrough treatments that aren’t widely available at smaller hospitals. Their groundbreaking studies have led to pioneering advances such as three new, FDA-approved cancer treatments, over 100 device patents and many leading-edge technologies.

Physicians at MU Health Care offer innovative solutions to health problems, from using your own body’s own immune system to fight cancer to establishing a regenerative joint center using technology only available at the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute. Our multidisciplinary teams use their own research, as well as the latest medical evidence, to create your care plan, which may include clinical trials, new medicines or the latest surgical techniques.
