Eight orthopedic oncologists came together this year to form the Philippine Musculoskeletal Tumor Society, Inc. (PMTS). It was founded with the objective of promoting musculoskeletal oncology, better known as tumor orthopaedics, both locally and internationally. The PMTS, Inc. becomes the youngest affiliate society of the Philippine Orthopaedic Association.
The Society was presented to the orthopedic community by POA president Dr. Rodolfo L. Nitollama on December 1, during the business meeting of the POA. Its inaugural scientific meeting was held last December 4, from 8 am-12 noon at the Boracay 2 Function Room, EDSA Shangri-la Hotel
