Dr Jonathan Rees

Consultant Rheumatologist


Specialises in

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Sports medicine

I am a highly experienced Consultant in Sports Medicine and Rheumatology. I have unique experience, having spent the previous eight years working with injured servicemen and women at Headley Court, the Military Rehabilitation Centre. I have worked at the highest level in sport, including a Physician to the London 2012 Olympic Games, and Physician to the Great Britain 2008 Paralympic Team in Beijing.

I have also worked in professional football and other high profile sports. This experience has helped me develop my philosophy of aiming for the best possible outcome. For every patient I see, my aim is to help them reach their maximum potential, whatever the injury or illness they may have. I am at the forefront of new developments in rheumatology and am currently introducing musculoskeletal ultrasound to both my NHS and private practice. This has enormous benefits for patients, allowing a more accurate assessment of disease activity as well as quicker diagnosis and targeted treatment. I completed my Medical Doctorate on Tendinopathy. I am extremely proficient at helping patients with tendon problems.

My publications in this area are among the most highly cited in literature and I regularly lecture internationally in this field. I have had comprehensive training in all aspects of rheumatology having worked at numerous major teaching hospitals including Guys and St Thomas, St Georges and Barts and the Royal London.
