Welcome Message

Dear colleagues, guests, and friends of ISOLS,

We hope that this message finds you, your family, and your loved ones safe and well during these difficult times.

The International Society of Limb Salvage (ISOLS) Governing Board has diverse- global representation. As a proud member of this leadership group, I would like to welcome you to Los Angeles, California, the site of the 21st General Meeting of ISOLS. I am excited to host this meeting at the UCLA Luskin Convention Center on the UCLA main campus from 6 to 9 September, 2022.

We are fortunate to have tremendous support from the leadership of UCLA Health to host this event along with many companies with similar expectations. The UCLA Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and ISOLS have scheduled an exciting meeting for all those interested in musculoskeletal tumors. It will include presentations on basic science, clinical trials, and translational projects dealing with limb salvage. Problems that have persisted for many years will be a common theme and approaches to solve them will only come from diverse thought processes which are novel.

We are fortunate to have support from the leadership of UCLA, UCLA Health, and UCLA Orthopaedic Surgery to host this event along with many sponsors, corporations, and companies with similar goals. The UCLA Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and ISOLS have scheduled an exciting meeting for all those interested in musculoskeletal tumors. It will include presentations on basic science, clinical trials, and translational projects. Musculoskeletal oncologic problems that have persisted for many years will also be a common theme.  These presentations will include approaches to solve them and will only come from diverse thought processes which are novel.

We want to give all attendees a chance to communicate their thoughts in various formats used previously in ISOLS meetings. Plenary lectures, crossfire sessions, symposia, roundtable discussions, and debates will focus on the most current and controversial topics in musculoskeletal oncology. We need time to allow for physicians, scientists, and colleagues to present their ideas and ask provocative questions. Discussions are crucial and, in many circumstances, just as important as the presented material.

We welcome you to Los Angeles, California, and hope your stay is exciting and rewarding to you.

Best regards and safe travels,


Francis J. Hornicek, MD, PHD
President of the ISOLS 2022 General Meeting
