Rheumatology is the branch of medicine that treats painful disorders affecting soft tissues around the joints and bones. Conditions include auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, ankylosing spondylitis and gout.
Rheumatologists also treat osteoporosis which is a degenerative disease affecting the density and strength of bones, particularly in women.
The Montefiore Hospital has an expert team of rheumatology consultants and specialised nursing staff, so you can be confident that you are in expert caring hands.
Our services are available to all, whether you are privately insured or you are paying for your own treatment. If the latter, we can offer a private treatment for a fixed price agreed in advance.
