Dr Sundeept Bhalara
MBBS, MSC, MD, MRCP
I qualified from University College, London in 1991. I trained in general medicine and rheumatology at St Bartholomew's, Charing Cross and the Hammersmith hospitals and the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, London. I have completed a doctoral thesis on issues concerned with the assessment of early inflammatory arthritis and biological therapy following research undertaken at the Kennedy Institute.
My current clinical practice is broad and involves the entire spectrum of rheumatological disease but I am particularly interested in inflammatory arthritis, soft tissue disease and osteoporosis.
I have published on these and related topics and was involved with early clinical trials on the use of novel biological agents in rheumatoid arthritis. During my earlier training I completed a Master's degree in immunology and retain an interest in the immunology of rheumatic disease.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Sundeept Bhalara at Spire include:
