Rheumatology

The Team

We are a group of paediatricans with special interest in Paediatric Rheumatology. The team is dedicated to provide care to those with rheumatic conditions. The diseases that we look after include:

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

  • Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

  • Rare inflammatory conditions e.g. Juvenile Dermatomyosis, Sclerderma, Behcet Disease, Systemic Vasculitis and etc 

Clinical Services

The team works closely with other Specialties and Allied Health workers. The aim is to provide multidisciplinary care to patients with special needs.

  • Together with our Interventional Radiologist, we offer Intra-Articular Steroid injection to individuals with inflammatory arthritis.

  • We refer patients with musculoskeletal conditions to our Phyiotherapists. Various physical therapists are provided according to individual needs e.g. hydrotherapy.

  • We also refer our patients with feet or peripheral vascular disease to our Hospital Podiatrists for assessment and treatment. 

 

Leisure activities are organized from time to time to promote mutual support between families with affected children.

 

The Paediatric Rheumatology Clinic is scheduled on every Wednesday afternoon.
