The Korean Bone & Joint Tumor Society
Introduction The Korean Bone and Joint Tumor Society (KBJTS) was formally founded at the first annual meeting held on August 24, 1990. The society holds an academic conference twice a year and has issued the Journal of the Korean Bone and Joint Tumor Society biannually since April 1995. Meanwhile, members have expanded their activities by forging various knowledge exchange programs with their peers in the international community, including the International Symposium on Limb Salvage (ISOLS), and took part in establishing the Asian Pacific Musculoskeletal Tumor Society (APMTS). The society held the 2nd APMTS conference in Korea in 1998 and published a medical textbook titled "Bone and Joint Oncology". It also held the 2005 ISOLS conference in Seoul.
