Children's National First in US to Destroy Bone Tumors With Incisionless Surgery

Doctors from the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation at Children’s National Health System are the first in the United States to treat osteoid osteoma, a benign but painful bone tumor that commonly occurs in children and young adults, using an experimental magnetic resonance-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (MR-HIFU) method. Two patients, 16-year-old Alfredo Coreas and 10-year-old Niyati Shah, have been treated successfully in a research study aimed at testing the safety and feasibility of this noninvasive and precise treatment option.
