USING a multidisciplinary approach that puts patients first, Junic Specialist Centre empowers women suffering with chronic pelvic pain, says Dr Uche Menakaya.

Focusing on endometriosis and women’s health, Dr Menakaya says they’ve been continuously improving their model of care since the centre was established four years ago.

“[We’re continually] improving our model of care when it comes to the management of pelvic pain, to help reduce the frustrations women feel when it comes to the health options available to them,” says Dr Menakaya.

Dr Menakaya says their patient-centred approach begins with the non-invasive diagnosis of endometriosis through ultrasound.

“If a patient requires surgery, we are able to offer them the best treatment,” he says.

“Should it be required, a bowel surgeon and urologist can also be involved. Patients have access to counselling, a pain specialist, our onsite physiotherapist and a psychologist.”

Dr Uche Menakaya, who is an obstetrician, gynaecologist, sonologist and laparoscopic surgeon, has been working with people with endometriosis for about 10 years and is part of a global leadership team researching non-invasive techniques to diagnose this condition, which affects one in 10 women in Canberra.

“When women walk through our doors, they are always listened to,” he says.

With endometriosis contributing to 40 per cent of pelvic pain in women, Dr Menakaya and his experienced clinical partner, Adjunct Associate Prof Elissa O’Keefe, say they are leaders in the field, pioneering best practice for endometriosis diagnosis and treatment in Canberra.
