Rheumatology

What we do

At both Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital we diagnose and manage conditions which cause painful joints and muscles. We see people of all ages including both adults and children. We have close links with Orthopaedics, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Podiatry, Plastic Surgery and other departments, to help make things as streamlined as possible for patients.

Conditions we treat include:

  • Early inflammatory, rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis
  • Ankylosing spondylitis, cervical and lumbar spondylosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Polymyalgia rheumatica and soft tissue rheumatism
  • Connective tissue disorders such as lupus and vasculitis
  • Gout and osteoporosis

We offer a variety of services including general and specialist clinics (for inflammatory arthritis, drug monitoring, injections, connective tissue disorders, osteoporosis and children’s rheumatology). At West Middlesex we provide a joint injection clinic for conditions such as tennis elbow, frozen shoulder and carpal tunnel syndrome.
