1st International Conference
Sacroiliac Joint Surgery
Sept. 18th - 19th 2015
Meet with an International faculty of Pelvic Pain Experts for
round table discussion:
Medical Association for
Research into Diseases of
the Sacroiliac Joints and
their Treatment
Sacroiliac Medical Expert Group e.V.
Concepts of interventional Pain Management
SIJ Fusion Methods
Diagnostic Guidelines
Surgical Guidelines
Non-surgical treatment Guidelines
Concepts of Clinical Studies
Dear Collegues,
The SIJ topic is still underrepresented in the established medical orthopedic and spine
societies. After 6 years of clinical practice with SIJ conservative and surgical treatment
the founding members of the SIMEG feel it is the right time to invite international
experts for discussion.
The 1st International Conference on Sacroiliac Joint Surgical Treatment will be held at
the Dorint Hotel in Hamburg/Germany. We expect a number of 100 participants. The
concept will focus on ‘round table’ discussions opened by key lectures of internationally
acknowledged experts.
Recent studies talk about increasing case numbers of sacroiliac joint surgery. The
prognosis expects a case ratio of up to 20 % of all spinal surgeries within the next
5 years. Diagnosis, pathological variations, sensitive neurovascular structures, pain
generators are areas to be explored, surgical hypes must be routed into healing.
The venue offers the advantage of very close disctance to the airport and train station,
also it is directly linked to the area of the University Hospital of Eppendorf, where the
learning center of the Forensic Institute offers excellent training facilities. No need to
mention the well known touristic attractions of this metropole city of Hamburg.
We kindly invite you to join us and look forward to meet you for this first special
conference on SIJ surgery.
Dr. med. Volker Fuchs

DORINT Hotel Hamburg Eppendorf
Since 15 September 2011, Dorint Hotels & Resorts are once again present in Hamburg with a hotel for you to enjoy.
The new Dorint Hotel Hamburg-Eppendorf is located in the gorgeous city precinct of Eppendorf. It is a newly-built
building that is both modern and stylish, and it was opened in 2011 as a new contribution to the Hamburg cityscape.
Eppendorf is widely regarded as one of the trendiest parts of Hamburg – its art nouveau buildings, terraced houses
and numerous brick-built villas with ivy-ranked facades lend an incomparable flair to the district. The name Eppendorf
is derived from Old German and means “waterside village”. And that is what it essentially still is – with neat streets,
small and exquisite stores, galleries, antique dealers, cafés and pubs there to be explored beside Lake Alster.
At the heart of this trendy part of town, right next to the Hamburg-Eppendorf university clinic, the Dorint hotel is
ready to pamper you with luxury 4-star comfort. Thanks to its strategic location in relation to airport, city centre,
the Hamburg congress centre and the exhibition centre, it is the perfect starting point for each and every occasion.
