Males with Pudendal Neuralgia in Australia

I’ve been contacted by a few males who feel their symptoms are similar to the ones I share on my website. There is help for males with Pudendal Neuralgia in Australia:


Thanks to Beth Shelly, DPT WCS, for the following info from a LinkedIn pain group):

  • Sherin Jarvis, a physiotherapist who works at the Women’s Health Institute of Australia, which is multi-disciplinary and (I think) the only dedicated pudendal neuralgia/PNE clinic on the east coast of Australia, where they do diagnostic procedures and injections, etc.  
Taryn Hallam is another excellent pelvic floor physio involved in teaching pelvic floor pain, who is in Sydney and treats pudendal neuralgia; she is also in a multidisciplinary clinic called Alana Health Care. www.alanahealthcare.com.au. Hope this helps.

And to confirm the above, a response to my query from the great Thierry G. Vancaillie MD (Belgium), Gynaecologist and Pain Medicine Specialist:

  • I do see men with pudendal neuralgia and so do the other practitioners at WHRIA (physio, osteo and acupuncture). Our offices are located at 97-99 Bathurst street, Sydney (next to Town Hall), the phone number is 1300 722 206


  • Royal Melbourne Hospital Urology Department. Cab be assessed by a Urologist first or referred by a GP to Anne Florence Plante.
  • Dr Peter Courtney. Melbourne Pain Group.  (03) 9566 2733. Currently Dr Courtney is in full time Pain practice with both public components and private components with the Melbourne Pain Group. Dr Courtney’s current interests include use of advanced interventional techniques in the treatment of neuropathic pain conditions and visceral pain, treatment of mechanical back pain, and the use of ketamine as an adjunct to assessment of patients as well as its use in opioid reduction.

      Hello Russell, I am not qualified to say. A pain specialist could definitely help you. Pain management is a field of its own.

    I can’t find any recent contact info on Dr Anne Florence Plante in Melbourne. I’m in a pathetic program for neurological pain that isn’t going anywhere. Seen many many specialist. At least a pudendal nerve block stopped the testicular pain, but 10 years of pain and lack of mobility and now I feel like I’m thrown to the scrap heap. Know of any other such specialist around Melbourne?

    My boyfriend has been diagnosed with Pudendal Neuralgia but we have to consult for a specialist who is expert on this condition. He has gone to many GPs but only gave him Lyrica (which does not really help). We would like to book for an appointment to see Dr.Vancaillie. My man has been suffering for 2 years now with this condition

      Dr Vancaillie is wonderful. In the meantime, you can also contact Dr Susie Gronski via http://drsusieg.com. Don’t hesitate to consult with her online – anything you learn will be very valuable. She is very experienced with male pelvic pain.

    I am a 50 yaers old man. After suffering through about 30 years and being misdiagnosed with so many things, it appears that I am suffering with pudendal neuralgia. I live and work in UAE where it appears no one has heard of this thing. Would like to see Dr. Vancaillie.
