Rheumatology involves the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of patients with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions. It incorporates disorders of joints, bones, tendons, and muscles which can cause pain, swelling, stiffness and deformity.

At Fortius we have a team of specialist rheumatologists who will evaluate all your symptoms before beginning the appropriate treatment.

Our specialist rheumatologists treat patients holistically and typically assess individuals with complex musculoskeletal pain where the diagnosis is not immediately obvious. To help with diagnosis and assess musculoskeletal abnormalities, your rheumatologist may suggest you have a blood test or a scan.

A personalised treatment plan will be developed which could include medication, physiotherapy, referral to other specialists or joint/tendon injections.

How is my condition diagnosed? 

At your appointment, one of our leading Rheumatologists will take a complete medical history and perform a physical examination to assess your symptoms. Blood tests and diagnostic imaging are also frequently performed to determine a diagnosis and create a personalised treatment plan.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic (long term) auto-immune disease (a condition where your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body) that progresses over time.
Back pain, usually in the lower (lumbar) area, is one of the most common medical problems, affecting around 80 per cent of people at some point in their lives.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis, causing pain, swelling and stiffness. It’s caused by long term wear to the joint surface cartilage.
Gout is a condition that causes intermittent and painful swelling of the joints. Whilst a joint in the big toe is the most commonly affected, gout can commonly attack other joints in the foot, ankle, knee, hand and wrist.
