Hosts

Tom Shives, M.D.

A Mayo Clinic orthopedic surgeon, is the host of Mayo Clinic Radio. For more than 19 years, Dr. Shives hosted a weekly radio call-in program known as Healthline on KROC-AM in Rochester, Minn. The format was simple: interview a Mayo Clinic specialist on an interesting topic, and provide listeners with in-depth information from someone with particular expertise in the subject. Out of Healthline grew Medical Edge Weekend, and now, Mayo Clinic Radio, bringing those same valuable insights to a potentially global audience.
