In human anatomy, the pelvis (plural pelves or pelvises) is either the lower part of the trunk, between the abdomen and the thighs (sometimes also called pelvic region of the trunk), or the skeleton embedded in it (sometimes also called bony pelvis, or pelvic skeleton).The pelvic region of the trunk includes the bony pelvis, the pelvic cavity (the space enclosed by the bony pelvis), the pelvic floor, below the pelvic cavity, and the perineum, below the pelvic floor. The pelvic skeleton is formed in the area of the back, by the sacrum and the coccyx and anteriorly and to the left and right sides, by a pair of hip bones. The two hip bones connect the spine with the lower limbs.
