At Boston Children’s Hospital, we develop treatments that are informed by our scientific research. We are home to the world’s most extensive research enterprise at a pediatric hospital.
In 2007, the Division of Gynecology completed a retrospective study to show the advantage of conservative surgical management of large ovarian neoplasms (tumors) in adolescents. The purpose of the study was to find the best way to remove large benign cysts from ovaries, while maximizing the reproductive potential of the patients. Reinforcing the reliability of the results, the same surgeon performed all nine of the ovarian cystectomy surgeries using a uniform technique for each patient.
Using ultrasound, the researchers found that the majority of the ovaries returned to the same size after the surgery as it was pre-operatively. Additionally, no surgical complications occurred.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
