Rheumatology Treatment

For many conditions, particularly sprains and sporting injuries, treatment is centred on physiotherapy, with a comprehensive physiotherapy department present nearby at London Bridge Hospital.

For those requiring an orthopaedic procedure, our hospital has over 42 orthopaedic surgeons specialising in every aspect of the specialty, from foot and ankle pain, knee conditions, shoulder tears and back problems, through to a wide range of joint replacements.

In addition, the medicine used in rheumatology has made huge strides. Newer anti-inflammatory medicines have replaced the older drugs, which tended to cause indigestion.

New medicines are being introduced in the treatment of osteoporosis. In more serious conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, the advances have been spectacular with a range of newer, less toxic drugs replacing the old – with fortunately less need for steroids.
