Rheumatology Services

 

Introduction

Rheumatology is the branch of medicine concerned with the cause, development, diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect the joints, muscles and connective tissue. Connective tissue diseases are types of auto-immune disorders, in which a person's immune system reacts against its own tissues.  Rheumatologists are specialised in diagnosing and treating more than 100 types of arthritic diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, managing pain and reducing inflammation to treat the disease.

The Rheumatology service is primarily an outpatient service with patients being admitted to ward 3C.
