Rheumatology deals with the care of patients with conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system, including joint diseases (arthritis), bone and muscle diseases, and conditions affecting soft tissues.

At Spire Dunedin Hospital, our rheumatologists work as part of a multi-disciplinary team which includes physiotherapists, occupational therapists and specialist nurses. They liaise with other hospital specialists and have close links with general practitioners, ensuring appropriate early specialist referral and ongoing care of patients with joint problems.

Our rheumatology consultants provide treatment for:

  • Undifferentiated inflammatory arthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Connective tissue disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Soft tissue rheumatism
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout

We are able to provide top quality, affordable patient care, from diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation with a single-point of referral, short waiting times, and with appointment and treatment times to suit the patient.

The hospital benefits from on-site X-ray, MRI, CT, ultrasound and works closely with GPs to ensure they are kept up-to-date with the very latest in treatment technology.
