Canberra Endometriosis Centre

The Canberra Endometriosis Centre is a network of health professionals who work with women and teenagers suffering with period pain, endometriosis and pelvic pain. We provide ongoing support to individuals and their families through diagnosis, treatment and long-term management.

The centre is run by a team of health professionals including advanced laparoscopic surgeons for endometriosis, gynaecologists specialising in pelvic pain, an endometriosis nurse coordinator and researcher and specialised pelvic physiotherapists.

The centre is also actively involved in research with focus areas including typical and atypical period pain in teenagers (MDOT - Menstrual Disorder of Teenagers study), screening for menstrual disturbance in teenagers with the PIPPA (Period ImPact and Pain Assessment) tool and development of the Endometriosis Impact Questionnaire (EIQ) to measure the long term impact of endometriosis on women’s lives.

Making an appointment

To use our services or book an appointment you will need a referral from your GP.

We triage your referral once it’s received and then call you to make an appointment with the Endometriosis Nurse.

Group Information Sessions

We hold free group endometriosis and pelvic pain information sessions each month at the Canberra Hospital (Building 11, Level 1).

We encourage you attend at least one of these sessions before coming to the centre. You don’t need a referral to attend these sessions.

Please make a booking on 02 5124 7625.
