Specialising in management of menstrual disorders, prolapse, bladder issues, abnormal cervical screens, fibroids, vulval complaints like itch and pain plus much more.

Menstrual Disorders

Heavy, irregular and painful periods are common problems that can affect many aspects of life. There are many causes for menstrual abnormalities and a range of effective medical and surgical treatment options. 

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence in women can range from leaking small amounts of urine with coughing and sneezing to losses of large amounts of urine at an unexpected time. Urinary incontinence issues affect over half of women aged over 45. There are many effective treatments for continence issues including pelvic physiotherapy, medical treatments and surgical slings. 

Vaginal Prolapse

Prolapse of the bladder, uterus and bowel are common issues for women in later life. Symptoms include pelvic heaviness and pain as well as bladder and bowel complaints. Treatment options include physiotherapy, vaginal pessaries and surgical vaginal repair. 

Menopause Management

Hot flashes can impact the quality of life of women during the years before and after menopause. The management of menopause symptoms can be complex in some women. Detailed education and informed decision making is required when considering treatments such as hormone replacement therapy and non-hormonal therapies. 

Abnormal Pap Smear and Colposcopy

Women with an abnormal pap smear result may be referred for colposcopy. Colposcopy is a detailed examination of the cervix. Small biopsies may be taken. It is common to experience anxiety when being evaluated for pap smear abnormalities. Our specialists will be able to provide education regarding the evaluation process as well as sensitivity and support during your care. 

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Many gynaecological surgical procedures can be performed by minimally invasive surgery. This includes laparoscopy (examination of the pelvis) and hysteroscopy (examination of the uterus). Minimally invasive surgery results in a shorter hospital admission, less post-operative pain and a shorter recovery. Evelyn & Rose Women’s Health is able to offer the full spectrum of minimally invasive surgical options for gynaecological conditions. 

Adolescent Gynaecology

Gynaecological concerns in girls and young women can be a confusing and at times frightening experience. The care of adolescents requires a holistic approach with attention to psychological wellbeing and social aspects of their lives. Evelyn & Rose Women’s Health specialists are able to expertly assess and manage adolescent gynaecological issues.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition associated with painful periods, pelvic pain and infertility. Endometriosis is diagnosed by laparoscopy. Surgical removal of endometriosis can improve pain related symptoms and fertility. There are a number of medical treatments that can improve endometriosis symptoms including progesterone containing intrauterine devices and oral progesterone therapies. 

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a common hormone condition. The syndrome can be associated with weight gain, acne and excess hair growth. Polycystic ovarian syndrome can lead to irregular and heavy periods. In later life, women with this condition have increased risks for diabetes and abnormal cells in the uterus. Both medical and surgical treatments are available to improve the quality of life and long-term health outcomes of women with this condition. 

Fibroids

Fibroids can contribute to heavy periods, pressure symptoms, pelvic pain and infertility. Both medical and surgical treatments are available to manage problems associated with fibroids. Minimally invasive surgical options are available and can be discussed with your specialist.
