BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
I treat patients with diseases that affect their joints and soft tissues; my clinical experience ranges from osteoarthritis, through the inflammatory conditions of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, to conditions that can also impact on other body systems and tissues, such as lupus and fibromyalgia. As Lead for the Early Inflammatory Arthritis Service at the Royal Free Hospital, I recognise the importance of an early and accurate diagnosis; we now have therapies that can change the course of inflammatory arthritic disease and careful management of patients can prevent disability and can help them sustain a good quality of life.
I have expertise and a wide range of experience in managing all rheumatological conditions ranging from isolated muscle, tendon or joint problems through to inflammatory arthritides such as rheumatoid arthritis and connective tissue diseases such as myositis and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
