About Our Society

The Spine Intervention Society (SIS) is an international physician organization dedicated to the development and promotion of the highest standards for the practice of interventional pain procedures.

Nearly 3000 physician members in 43 countries rely on SIS for its renowned advocacy, research, and educational programs designed to advance evidence-based practice and ensure patient access to quality care and appropriate interventional pain treatments.

SIS membership is primarily composed of physicians who are board certified in anesthesiology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, radiology, neurology, orthopedic surgery, or neurosurgery.

SIS Mission

To develop and promote the highest standards for the practice of interventional procedures.

SIS Vision

Interventional procedures that are correctly indicated, competently performed, and beneficial to our patients and society.


The Spine Intervention Society (SIS) emerged from a multi-specialty study group originally formed in 1988 when its founding members started meeting and sharing information on their initial studies on the then-emerging spine intervention field. The group incorporated in April 1993 as the International Spinal Injection Society (ISIS) and began holding cadaveric workshops and annual scientific meetings. The organization’s initial reputation as a leader in interventional pain medicine (IPM) has been built upon, and enhanced by, the publication of its critically important, widely read, and heavily cited landmark Practice Guidelines for Spinal Diagnostic and Treatment Procedures, the global standard of care for spine intervention – now in its 2nd edition.

Over the last 30 years, the Society has expanded in membership size, offerings, and scope – now encompassing interventional pain procedures beyond the spine.
