From arthritis, to connective tissue disorders, our modern, consultant led rheumatology department provides individual care. At an Oxfordshire hospital with all related facilities available on site.
From Restriction To Movement
Rheumatology is the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the joints, muscles, or bones. Conditions affecting them are often inflammatory, or immune system related.
They can bring pain, which needs to be managed, although our team understand that the prime problem is restrictions they place on life.
The first step in removing those barriers is accurate, individual diagnosis, by a consultant rheumatologist. This may include medical imaging such as x-rays, or blood tests.
A consultant’s knowledge is the key, for common conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, or complex, inherited disorders. They will create a treatment plan focused on your needs.
Treatment can range from medication, to injections, physio, or complete joint replacement. Part of shared decisions, to see disease gone and the pleasure of movement return.
Our specialist rheumatologists can help you with almost any issue you’re having with your joints, including:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Soft tissue rheumatism
- Connective tissue disorders
