The Rheumatology Department brings together scientific researchers and medical clinicians who have a common interest in understanding and improving the outcomes for disorders of the musculoskeletal system. We are currently conducting research into the causes, impact and treatment of a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders. While some of the key focuses of the department include Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis and Low Back Pain, investigations into Osteonecrosis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Psoriatic Arthritis are also carried out by our clinicians and researchers. Our researchers are members of national and international advisory committees that raise awareness and promote care and research for MSK conditions.
