Rheumatology

The Wilmslow Hospital works with specialist Rheumatologists to offer you a comprehensive service including diagnosis and treatment of conditions in rheumatology.

Our Rheumatologists work closely with Orthopaedic Surgeons, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Podiatrists and Nurses amongst other healthcare professionals. Conditions treated by Rheumatologists include Spondylitis, Fibromyalgia, Polymyalgia, Gout, Soft Tissue Conditions, Autoimmune Rheumatic Disorders, Spinal Pain and Metabolic Bone Disease such as Osteoporosis.

There are 5 main categories that the different types of rheumatology conditions fall into:

  • Inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis
  • Degenerative or mechanical arthritis such as osteoarthritis
  • Soft tissue musculoskeletal pain such as shoulder or knee problems (possibly related to an injury)
  • Back pain
  • Connective tissue diseases such as lupus, schleroderma or vasculitis

Our rheumatologists assess all of these problems, whether there is one joint or part of the body affected or many areas. They have access to our state of the art facilities, including pathology and diagnostic imaging such as, x-ray, ultrasound, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and DEXA scanning.
