Philippine Shoulder Society PSS - pShS
The Philippine Shoulder Society (PShS) sought to fill the fraternizing need of local orthopedic surgeons with an interest in the forgotten joint. Drs. Andres D. Borromeo, Antonio A. Rivera, and Lauro M. Abrahan, Jr. have already been representing the Philippines in various shoulder meetings abroad. It was but fitting that founding PShS President Dr. Jose Pujalte, Jr. sought their wisdom and experience as Advisers of the society. Dr. Pujalte trained under Dr. Nobuhara in 1995. The following year, while under the tutelage of Dr. Ramon B. Gustilo in Hennepin County Medical Center (Minneapolis, Minnesota), he also assisted Dr. Douglas A. Becker from the Mayo Clinic in shoulder cases.
