Males with Pudendal Neuralgia in Australia

Author:

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:

Sydney

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

Melbourne

  • 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.

What is Pudendal Neuralgia (PN)?

Most simply put PN is Carpal Tunnel in the pelvis/buttocks. Compression of the Pudendal Nerve occurs after trauma to the pelvis and is aggrevated with pressure. The pain is often described as a toothache like pain, with spasms, sensations of tingling, numbness, or burning. It can be very debilitating.
