Canberra Endometriosis Centre

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

The centre is run by a team of gynaecologists, an endometriosis nurse coordinator, researcher and other health professionals who specialise in pelvic physiotherapy, psychology, pain management and chronic pain.

While we mainly focus on women who suffer from endometriosis, we also offer support and management for painful periods, menstrual disturbance and pelvic pain.

The centre is also actively involved in research with focus areas including period pain and the long term impact of endometriosis on women’s lives.

March is Endometriosis Awareness month. Please see Endometriosis Australia for more information.

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.

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 6174 7625.
