Osteochondroma (Exostosis) | Research & Clinical Trials


At Boston Children's Hospital, our care is informed by our research. We have a long history of research and innovation in treating conditions like osteochondromas.

Boston Children's is a world leader in opening new avenues of "translational research," bringing laboratory advances to the bedside and doctor's office as quickly as possible. All of our senior medical staff members of the Bone and Soft Tissue Tumors Program participate in clinical research activities. Our Translational Research Program aims to dramatically improve translational research in pediatric hematology and oncology.

In addition to a variety of clinical trials, Boston Children’s also conducts extensive laboratory research to identify new treatments and improve therapies for bone and soft tissue tumors.
