Dr Raad Makadsi
Consultant Physician and Rheumatologist
MB ChB, MSc, MRCP
I am a Consultant Physician and Rheumatologist and qualified in medicine from Mosul University Medical School in 1987 with a MB ChB degree. I did my general medical training at Royal Liverpool University Hospital, where I obtained the Membership of the Royal College of Physicians of the United Kingdom in February 1998. I then joined the North Western Deanery in Manchester as a specialist registrar in medicine and rheumatology.
During my training I was an honorary teacher at the Medical School of Manchester University. I obtained an MSc in clinical rheumatology from Manchester University in 2003. My research was on multi-drug resistance in rheumatoid arthritis and I also have several publications on osteoporosis.
On 1 September 2003 I joined the medical team at East Surrey Hospital as a Consultant Physician and Rheumatologist. I have weekly rheumatology clinics at East Surrey, Crawley and Queen Victoria hospitals.
I have an interest in all rheumatological diseases with special interest in rheumatoid/inflammatory arthritis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and soft tissue rheumatism.
I see both adults and children at Spire Gatwick Park Hospital.
