The acute and (chiefly) chronic conditions we treat can be divided into the following major groups:
- Chronic inflammatory joint disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) and crystal arthritis (e.g. gout).
- Systemic disorders, such as systemic lupus, Sjögren's Syndrome, dermatomyositis and polymyositis, systemic sclerosis, vasculitis, Adult Onset Still Disease and sarcoidosis.
- Metabolic bone diseases, such as osteoporosis and Paget's Disease.
- Degenerative disorders, such as osteoarthritis.
We work across disciplines, if necessary. Our department also maintains good relations with academic centres and collaborates on scientific research. The quality of our care and your satisfaction are always our top priority.
