Rheumatology

 

Our rheumatologists run specialist clinics for conditions affecting the joints and surrounding tissues such as arthritis, connective tissue and autoimmune disease. Conditions treated include arthritis, osteoporosis, connective tissues and other systemic autoimmune diseases.

 

Our Department specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and ongoing management of a wide range of conditions which affect the joints and surrounding tissues. Joint and soft tissue injections are provided within general clinics, joint injection clinics under radiographic guidance are arranged with the radiology department.

 

With over 200 types of arthritis and rheumatic diseases, the department offers a comprehensive diagnostic and treatment service, via face to face and telephone appointments. Specialist clinics are run for the monitoring of medication, including disease modifying and biologics therapies. Patients with inflammatory conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, connective tissue diseases and spondyloarthropathies, are followed up in the service. 

 

Those under 16 are generally treated in paediatric rheumatology services, before starting to transition to care within adult rheumatology settings.
