Breaking news! 🔊🔉 It’s just been announced by the Gold Coast Government that a brand new clinic will be opening for women affected with pain following pelvic mesh insertion.
The pelvic mesh was used to manage pelvic weakness, sometimes as a result of child birth. It has been under the watchful eye of many following claims of pain after insertion which has led to a state enquiry and a class action with an eventual ban. $3 million a year will be injected into a new clinic at the Gold Coast University Hospital with an integrative care approach consisting of specialist doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, social workers and psychologists.
The clinic is expected to open mid next year and will serve the state.
This is extremely exciting news for women who have been suffering pelvic pain following mesh surgery.
If you or a loved one is affected or wish for more information please pop by and see me in clinic.
Did you know that condoms aren’t as effective as the pill or coil?
Recent research has shown that women aged 16-24 years are more likely to only use barrier contraception, which can lead to unplanned and unwanted pregnancies, and can cause emotional turmoil.
Keeping up to date with new evidence and research is a vital part of my job as a General Practitioner. There are plenty of safe and reliable forms of birth control, if you would like more information please do come by and see me in clinic. Remember, although condoms may not be the best in birth control they are the best are reducing the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases.
