Gynaecologist, Specialist Pain Medicine Physician



Dr Susan Evans is the founder of Pelvic Pain SA, a group of independent health professionals all with an interest in the care of girls and women with pelvic pain.

Pelvic Pain can be complicated and our patients often come to us with several different health concerns. One of the reasons that girls, women (and some men) find it difficult to get the help they need is that no health professionals have all the skills needed to manage all these different problems alone.

We are all independent practitioners, but working together makes it easier for our patients to access the mix of services they need. It also makes it easy to learn together, be involved in teaching and do research.

Further information about Pelvic Pain SA is available at

For a wide range of  information on Pelvic Pain for girls, women and men, we recommend you visit the Pelvic Pain Foundation of Australia at
