Rheumatology

Rheumatology involves the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of patients with arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions. It incorporates disorders of joints, bones, tendons, muscles, spinal pain and inflammatory arthritis amongst others. At Fortius we have a team of expert Rheumatologists who will evaluate all of your symptoms before beginning the appropriate treatment.

What is a Rheumatologist?

A Rheumatologist is an expert in diagnosing and treating arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions. Our specialist Rheumatologists treat patients holistically and typically assess individuals with complex musculoskeletal pain where the diagnosis is not immediately obvious.
