Our treatment options for pelvic pain
If you have pelvic pain, we will identify the cause or source of pain before determining the most suitable treatment approach. You may need an internal exam as well as a pelvic ultrasound.
Possible treatments for chronic pelvic pain include pain medicines, hormone treatment, dietary changes, or surgery.
Surgery may help to correct the underlying cause of the pain. The surgery could be minimally-invasive or more involved, depending on the reason for your pain.
If you would like to make an appointment to discuss your health concern, please phone the practice on (07) 4230 0030.
