I am a Consultant Rheumatologist.  Rheumatology is a medical specialty that deals with conditions affecting the joints and other parts of the musculo- skeletal system. 
As a rheumatologist, I also look after patients with autoimmune conditions that may affect different organs : skin, lungs,  kidneys , gut, nervous system and others. 

Musculo-skeletal Ultrasound is a quick and efficient procedure that helps diagnosing arthritis at a very early stage and allows a close monitoring of the disease activity after starting medication. It has revolutionized the practice of rheumatology worldwide. 

There are more than 100 types of rheumatic diseases.  Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the commonest forms of arthritis. other types of inflammatory arthritis include: ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis,  reactive arthritis, arthritis related to inflammatory bowel diseases.
 

One of the most common bone conditions is osteoporosis: diagnosing osteoporosis is crucial to prevent fractures especially among postmenopausal women.

Being trained and certified in interventional rheumatology allows me to perform procedures such as joints, tendons and bursa injections with ultrasound guidance for better accuracy and outcomes. 
 

Tendinitis, tendinosis, enthesitis, fibromyalgia.
