As a Lecturer at Sydney University Medical School, she inspires future doctors to adopt the same integrative clinical approach.
With Dr Natasha Andreadis, Gynaecologist, Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility Specialist
Junior doctors encounter patients presenting with pelvic pain on a regular basis, particularly in the Emergency Department. It is essential to take a systematic and thorough approach to examining and investigating these patients, as there is a considerable – and sometimes confusing – overlap of medical specialties that are involved in treating the various pathologies causing pelvic pain.
