Platform of discussion and scientific communication for implantology
Organization of  meetings and conferences
international congress on up-to-date topics



Because of the unsatisfactory clinical results in the treatment of malformations and tumor induced defects in the face, the society for implantology and tissue-integrated prosthetis (GIGIP) was founded in 2002 by maxillofacial and plastic surgeons as well as dentists on the initiative of Prof. Holle and Prof. Vinzenz . The main goal of the society is the encouragement of interdisciplinary cooperation and collaboration in the field of implantology. While today various medical and surgical specialities exist, the experts using implants face rather similar challenges and thus can learn from each other. Therefore, the GIGIP  offers a platform of discussion and scientific communication by organizing meetings and conferences on a regular basis and every few years an international congress on up-to-date topics. GIGIP is « divided » in 4 workgroups representing the head-neck-region, the thorax, the abdomen and the musculoskeletal system; all areas in the human body where implants of different kind are utilized. In the past 10 years GIGIP and its work groups where able to present an international accepted performance profile becoming one of the most highly renowned societies in their field.
