"The hospital is constantly striving to provide the best patient care possible, pushing me to do the same, with the recent CQC rating being a testament to this."
I see all cases of Rheumatology problems including Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Psoriatic arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis (Axial Spondyloarthritis), Gout, Pseudogout, Reactive arthritis, Lupus (SLE), Sjogren's syndrome, Scleroderma, Myositis, Vasculitis, Behcet's, Sarcoidosis, PMR (Polymyalgia Rheumatica), Temporal arteritis, Fibromyalgia, Tendinitis, Bursitis, Soft tissue Rheumatism, Chronic back pain, Sciatica, Neck pain, Lumbar and Cervical spondylosis, Wrist pain, Feet pain, Ankle pain, Plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, Tennis elbow, Golfer's elbow, Trigger fingers, Shoulder pain (Rotator cuff syndrome), Osteoporosis, Carpal tunnel syndrome, Paget's disease and Hypermobility. I am fully competent and confident in all the joint injections (both larger as well as smaller joints), joint aspirations, also injections for tendons, bursa and carpal tunnel.
I believe in recent concept of 'Treat to target' with tight control of the disease to have better long term outcome. My aim is to offer holistic treatment rather than managing only one joint and also to support people in self management of their problems, so that people can achieve best possible quality of life with high self-confidence.
After completing training in medicine and getting MBBS degree, I completed my post graduate training in North England (2001-2005). I was awarded with MRCP (Member of Royal College of Physicians, UK) in 2003. Later on, I joined the higher specialist training programme in South London and Kent. During this period I worked at Lewisham Hospital, Maidstone Hospital, Princess Royal University Hospital (Farnborough), Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Woolwich) and King's College Hospital. I also completed my MSc degree in Rheumatology from King's College, London. Later on I was also awarded MRCP (Rheumatology) degree. I have been working as a Rheumatology consultant in NHS since 2012, worked at reputed Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital, Oswestry and my private work at Nuffield Shrewsbury Hospital. I have now moved to Medway Maritime Hospital and also run two Rheumatology clinics at Sheppey Community Hospital.
I am also a clinical lead in teaching 'long term condition block' 4th year medical students from King's College, London. My role is to teach and arrange teaching for these students at Medway hospital. I am an appraiser for my fellow consultants and junior doctors' at Medway Maritime Hospital.
