About Dr Charles Armstrong

As a child growing up in the UK I always wanted to be a vet. Later I realised Medical School was more for me, however it was quite a journey for me to get in. Long story short, I worked first as a theatre porter in London and travelled to Australia. Working here, travelling and meeting all sorts of people was a very important phase in my life. When I travelled back to the UK, I got into Medical School and the rest is history.
At Medical School I was fascinated by the O&G block, and it made me decide that I never wanted to do anything else. Obstetrics and Gynaecology presented as two specialties that are closely connected, an excellent mix of medicine and surgery. I was attracted by the opportunity to make a difference, the variation and the collaborative nature of working in women’s health.

I have worked or trained in O&G in England, Scotland, New Zealand, and Australia.  The medical systems are similar, but every country or region has its own approach, and I am grateful to have learned from mentors and colleagues across continents.

Within obstetrics and gynaecology, I consider myself very much a generalist. With the exception of colposcopy, I offer a wide range of services in antenatal care and obstetrics and the general gynaecology services:

  • Investigative and operative gynaecology for the management of:
    • menstrual disorders
    • heavy and painful periods
    • irregular bleeding, Polycystic ovarian syndrome
    • fibroids
    • ovarian cysts
    • endometriosis and pelvic pain
    • prolapse and incontinence
    • primary investigation of sub-fertility
  • Laparoscopic treatment of endometriosis and ovarian cysts
  • Laparoscopic and vaginal hysterectomy
  • Vaginal prolapse repair, and TVT sling

My rooms and main private practice are in St John of God Mt Lawley Hospital and this is where the majority of my work happens.

I also deliver at St John of God Subiaco Hospital and King Edward Memorial Hospital.

I prioritise St John of God Mt Lawley as the maternity hospital for most of my patients unless:

  • Osborne Park Hospital patients come to see me as a public patient in my rooms to then have surgery in Osborne Park Hospital
  • High-risk patients who will deliver at KEMH if it is not possible to deliver at Mt Lawley
