Our rheumatology service at Guy’s Hospital is one of the largest in the UK.

There are over 200 types of rheumatic and arthritis disease, with arthritis being the second most common cause for time off work. Early diagnosis and treatment is therefore essential in ensuring that patients can control their condition.

We offer a wide range of services to diagnose and treat joint, bone and connective tissue conditions. We also diagnose and treat patients with back pain. We work closely with our hospital’s pain medicine service to help patients develop long-term pain management programmes.

For patients that require further support, we also have specialist teams in orthotics and physiotherapy.
