Dr Shahid Jawed
MBBS, MD, FRCP
I have been a Consultant in Rheumatology and General Medicine for over 12 years. In my first 2 years at Kingston I established an Osteoporosis Service locally. They now run a service with all the latest treatments available. I then trained in musculoskeletal US and image guided spinal injections. This aids early detection of inflammatory arthritis and allows accurate aspiration & injections, if needed.
I am experienced with complex biologics treatments with over 400 patients under our care at the unit. Linking in to the US theme I am very experienced at dealing with sports and soft tissue injuries and have a long association with sporting bodies. Having been an international sportsman myself, I have a good insight in to the goals and needs of injured athletes.
I am also experienced at administering autologous blood injections for difficult tendonopathies. I also offer treatment for the general rheumatology problems of osteoarthritis, gout and more rare autoimmune disorders.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Shahid Jawed at Spire include:

Dr Jawed's spare time is spent mostly with his family generally doing as he is told!. In his younger days he was a two time British Powerlifting Champion and placed 5th in the 1997 World Championships. He still goes to the gym regularly and coach youngsters when he can. He competes once a year in the Masters, it takes that long to recover! Dr Jawed has been the Medical Advisor for the BDFPA for nearly 20 years.
