9th Multidisciplinary course of Bone and Soft Tissue Tumors – Madrid 2022.
We are delighted to announce the organization of the 9th Bone and Soft Tissue Tumors Madrid Course in Madrid, Spain to be held in June 2022. We are privileged to be presenting it again this year, and have increased, updated, and diversified its content to make it more applicable to relevant physicians than before.
The faculty include internationally renowned orthopaedic oncology surgeons, musculoskeletal pathologists, bone radiologists, medical and radiation oncologists, plastic surgeons from the best sarcomas centers including Harvard Medical School – Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston) and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (Boston); David Geffen School of Medicine and Ronald Regan; Miller School of Medicine, University of Miami; MD Anderson Cancer Center of University of Texas (Houston); Health Science Center of University of Texas San Antonio; University Hospital of New Jersey Medical School, (Newark); NOVA Southeastern University College of Allopathic Medicine (Fort Lauderdale); Henry Ford Hospital (Detroit); Center for Musculoskeletal Oncology (University of Padova); Hopital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (Montreal, Canada) and La Paz University Hospital (Madrid).
The Course is based on the precepts established by its founder Dr. Henry J. Mankin and is supported by the Musculoskeletal Tumor Society (www.msts.org). Many of the faculty are MSTS members and include leaders of its standing committees and president of the society. The participants (190 – 210; 40% from outside of Spain) include residents, fellows, and practicing clinicians who are interested to study, to treat and management patients with bone and soft tissue neoplasms.
The course offers state of the art scientific information regarding the epidemiology, genetics, diagnosis, radiology and treatment of musculoskeletal tumors. The Course offers to all multidisciplinary sarcoma teams greater knowledge of the scientific basis 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 plastic surgery).
The Course has new national speakers and renewed conferences, as well as an extension to practical clinical cases and interactive participation, making it increasingly attractive for all participants and assistants. A truly multidisciplinary approach is taken throughout the course, as it is to be expected in the treatment of these kinds of pathologies.
This course was organized in Madrid in 2000, 2003, 2009, 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2019 with excellent attendance figures, since when we have been repeatedly asked when we would be organizing it again. We feel privileged to be holding it again this year, having enlarged, updated and diversified its content to make it even more popular than before.
