Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology

The Queensland Statewide Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology Service provides a full range of elective gynaecology services for children and adolescents aged from 8 to 18 years. Acute services are co-ordinated by the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital Paediatric Surgical team.

  • surgery for vaginal reconstruction and vaginal dilatation
  • endocrine disorders impacting on menstruation
  • menstrual management for girls with complex medical conditions such as metabolic and gastroenterological conditions, and patients from oncology and rehabilitation.
