We are delighted to announce the organization of the sixth Bone and Soft Tissue Tumors Madrid Course in Madrid.
Orthopaedic oncology surgeons, musculoskeletal pathologists, bone radiologists, medical oncologists, reconstructive and reparative surgeons and medical radiation oncology from the Harvard Medical School, the Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston), the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (Boston), the University of Hawaii, the Medical Oncology Department of the MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston), University Hospital, Newark (New Jersey), University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, the University of Puerto Rico, Universidad del Valle, Cali (Colombia) and the La Paz University Hospital (Madrid) will be responsible for imparting the course in accordance with the guiding principles established by Dr. Henry J. Mankin.
The course provides orthopaedic surgeons, pathologists and radiologists with a more in-depth understanding of the scientific foundations of musculoskeletal pathology, in which the roles of the orthopaedic surgeon, pathologist and radiologist overlap. This is complemented by the range of different treatment options, both general (medical oncology) and local (orthopaedic oncology surgery, radiation oncology and reconstructive and reparative surgery).
A truly multidisciplinary approach is taken throughout the course, as it to be expected in the treatment of these kinds of pathologies.
This course was organized in Madrid in 2000, 2003, 2009, 2012 and 2014, with excellent attendance figures, and since then we have repeatedly been asked when we would be organizing it again. We feel privileged to be holding it again this yearhaving expanded, updated and broadened its content to make it more popular than ever before.
