Dr Daniel Fishman
Consultant Physician and Rheumatologist
BSc MBBS FRCP PhD
I have been a Consultant Physician and Rheumatologist since 2001, undertaking NHS and private practice in all forms of inflammatory arthritis, connective tissue disease and soft-tissue rheumatism. I run the paediatric rheumatology service at Luton and see children of all ages in my NHS and private practice.
I have played a key role in the development of acute medical service in my NHS hospital, as well as developing both adult and paediatric rheumatology. I have held several senior positions in the Trust, as well as being Treasurer for the British Society for Adolescent and Paediatric Rheumatology in the past.
I treat all forms of inflammatory and degenerative arthritis with joint, tendon and soft tissue injections to patients of all ages.
I have performed hundreds of joint injections in my career, in both private and NHS practice.
I am the Clinical Director for rheumatology at Luton and Dunstable University Trust. I am Secretary for the East Anglian Rheumatology Society and Eastern Regional rep on the Executive Committee of the British Society for Rheumatology.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Daniel Fishman at Spire include:
Spire Harpenden Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
