we are pleased to announce on 8 and 9 July 2016, in Paris, the First International Symposium on Coccyx Disorders and to introduce the program.
Even today, coccydynia remains a poorly understood condition in which the care is often deemed unsatisfactory, both by doctors and patients. It is, as we all know, the source of considerable discomfort in everyday life. However, although research has intensified in recent years, no meeting was ever dedicated to this topic! In order to fill this gap, we decided to organize this International Symposium. Renowned experts will present their work in the fields of history, anatomy, comparative anatomy, pathophysiology, clinics, imaging and therapeutics. As you can see the program is as complete as possible. Ample room is included for discussions and exchanges because everyone's experience in such a narrow field is irreplaceable. We chose for this meeting the beautiful surroundings of the Natural History Museum, the Great Gallery of Evolution. We look forward to welcome you and hope to see you soon in Paris!
