Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr David O'Reilly at Spire include:
For over 24 years, I have worked as consultant rheumatologist at the West Suffolk Hospital. I also have a decade of experience in emergency medicine. I still manage the full range of musculoskeletal and inflammatory disorders on a daily basis.
I specialise in the early diagnosis and treatment of inflammation based arthritis, for instance rheumatoid, psoriatic and reactive arthritis. With appropriate conventional treatment tailored specifically to the individual the majority of patients will have well controlled disease with much reduced risk of long term problems. For patients with long standing disease, I have over 15 years' experience in the use of the 'biological' treatments for arthritis conditions. The cost of these drugs have halved recently, however for NHS the access to these treatments are subject to the same restrictions. In my every day work I manage all of the common musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, neck pain, osteoprosis and polymyalgia etc
In rheumatology good results require a close working relationship between specialist and patient over time. To see how seriously I take this relationship see up to date feedback from my patients and colleagues on the "Reviews" page at RheumatologyUK.com
In 2016 the British Society for Rheumatology named me as a 'Distinguished member' for my contribution to the specialty. My key interest is the diagnosis, assessment and treatment of 'early arthritis'.
To find out how my patients and colleagues regard me see their 2016 feedback on my website.
