Dr. Mayo returned to Harborview Hospital and Washington State University in 1984, where he practiced trauma and became one of the first American surgeons to perform acetabular and pelvic surgery. He was one of four surgeons who made up the “Bande of Letournel” that traveled the world teaching acetabular surgery techniques. From 1995 to 2001, he joined Robert Teitge, MD, and Jeff Mast, MD, at Detroit Medical Center/Wayne State University, where they established one of the leading orthopedic practices and fellowships in the United States.

His more than 30-year career has encompassed all aspects of hip and pelvic care, including complex trauma, joint replacement, and a progressive focus on hip preservation. He has performed more than 900 periacetabular osteotomies for hip dysplasia. He has been involved in surgeon education and clinical research throughout his career. He has lectured and taught extensively in North America and around the world. He has served as an AO Foundation Chair, teaching surgeons, fellows, and residents in pelvic/acetabular surgery, fracture surgery, hip preservation, and deformity correction.
