Membership Information

If you are not currently a member of the Georgia Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to join your state specialty organization. GSIPP strives to promote the development and practice of safe, high quality, cost-effective interventional pain management techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of pain related disorders, and to ensure patient access to these interventions. One the society's goals continues to be increasing membership so we can have a greater impact on political issues and a greater presence in Georgia. With so much uncertainty as to the future of health care, we must be able to come together as one voice to represent our specialty in our state.
