Excerpt from

Professor Roger Robert (Nantes, France) and his team come to Sydney 2012

In March 2011, Professor Thierry Vancaillie (Gynaecologist and Pain Medicine Specialist) and Ms Sherin Jarvis (Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist) both from the Women’s Health & Research Institute of Australia (WHRIA) and the Royal Hospital for Women, along with Dr Andreas Loeffler (Orthopaedic Surgeon, Prince of Wales and Prince of Wales Private Hospitals) visited the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire (CHU) Nantes, France.

A week was spent working with the team of Professor Roger Robert (Anatomist and Neurosurgeon). The CHU in Nantes has a long-standing history in the treatment of pain syndromes and is a premier centre in Europe. During the week we were very fortunate and honoured to be able to follow the team during its activities; clinical, surgical and educational. This resulted in the introduction of the gluteal approach to pudendal nerve release surgery at the Randwick, Sydney campus and has enhanced our understanding and management of patients suffering from the debilitating condition, “pudendal neuralgia”.

The team from Nantes has agreed to accept our invitation to come to Australia to share their expertise. We trust that you will enjoy the seminar on Saturday 4th February 2012.
