Dear SIMEG members as well as members of the SI joint surgical community,

SIMEG, like nearly all other medical societies, has had to adapt to the Corona-19 pandemic.  We have therefore initiated a new way presenting cutting edge information about SI Joint surgery that is internet based.  For this year, our Board had agreed to replace our annual meeting with monthly 1.5-hour internet conferences.  They will be open to SIMEG members, the SIJ surgical community, as well as representatives from industry.  These conferences will be free of charge - please check in later to find the inviting link.

Opinions and Comments:

“"I am really thrilled about the increased interest of my life commitment – the sacroiliac joint. You might know I have been working on the field since 1986. I am very glad to hear that several orthopedic surgeons are realizing the importance of the SI-joint. As well I think planning of a conference is extremely important to give it an important impact. The fate of the SIJ should be taken care of." (Dr. Bengt Sturesson, 02-26-2015)”

What is the purpose of SIMEG?

There is an undoubted need to perform surgical treatment in cases of painful degenerative SIJ dysfunction if nonsurgical therapies continue to fail. The introduction of new surgical techniques and medical devices cause new challenges to the spinal surgeon. The international association ‘Sacroiliac Medical Expert Group e.V.’ was founded to explore the questions of pelvic girdle pain and SIJ syndrome more deeply and to evaluate and develop diagnostic and therapeutical standards and guidelines without bias.
