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:
- 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.
