Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain Clinic

The Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain Clinic at The Royal Women’s Hospital is run by a team of specialist gynaecologists with an interest in endometriosis, pelvic pain and its sequelae. The clinic also manages general gynaecological presentations including ovarian cysts and dysfunctional uterine bleeding.

Tertiary gynaecology care is provided at the Parkville campus by a team of specialist doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and dieticians. Advanced laparoscopic surgeons work collaboratively with colorectal and urological surgeons when required for the management of complex endometriosis cases.

The clinic works closely with the Women’s Gynaecology Research Centre based at the Royal Women’s Hospital and affiliated with the University of Melbourne. Patients have the opportunity to be involved in observational and clinical trials focussing on improving the diagnosis and management of endometriosis.
