International Pilonidal Society

Planning for The Society started in 2013 to educate patients about pilonidal sinus (sometimes called ingrown hair between the buttocks) and keep surgeons informed of the latest news and developments in this field.

IPS is a not for profit health promotion society with the following aims:

✓ Promote communication between surgeons managing patients with pilonidal sinus.
✓ Promote and organise scientific meetings regarding pilonidal sinus and related conditions.
✓ Promote research into pilonidal sinus including prevention and treatment.
✓ Set up training opportunities for surgeons and surgeons in training.
✓ Provide information about pilonidal sinus and APSS events.

International Pilonidal Society is looking for:

✓ All surgeons who have an interest in pilonidal sinus treatment
✓ Patients to share their experience on our blog
✓ Sponsors as the web site is currently unfunded
✓ Suggestions e.g. conference venues, topics, speakers
