Dr Claudia Cheng is an Advanced Laparoscopic Surgeon and Gynaecologist.
She has special interest in treating women with endometriosis and pelvic pain. Persistent pelvic pain is a growing area of research and our knowledge of it is advancing. Although pelvic pain often involves multiple organs and conditions, endometriosis remains a significant cause and contributor. To manage persistent pelvic pain, Dr Claudia Cheng is mindful that it requires understanding, attentiveness to details, comprehensive history taking and plenty of empathy. Treatment options need to be holistic and it is vital that the patient is actively involved in the decision making.
When it comes to operating on endometriosis, meticulous removal of all possible endometriosis yields the best surgical outcome for patients. Dr Claudia Cheng is a level 6 laparoscopic surgeon who routinely operates on the most severe stage 4 endometriosis, with this in mind. She has over ten years of consultant and surgical experience in the field.
In addition to her clinical work, Dr Claudia Cheng is very active in research, teaching and mentoring. She has published prospective trials on endometriosis, pelvic pain and bladder pain syndrome. She also operates within the endometriosis focused unit of Gynaecology 2 at the Royal Women’s Hospital. She is on the board of examiners and a training supervisor at RANZCOG (Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists); an honorary clinical senior lecturer and examiner at the University of Melbourne; as well as a training supervisor for AGES (Australasian Gynaecological Endoscopy & Surgery Society).
