Overview

MIOT International’s Department of Rheumatology treats any painful disorder that affects the human locomotor system including joints, muscles, connective tissues, soft tissues around the joints, and bones. Our rheumatologists treat all rheumatological conditions, including inflammatory arthritis, connective-tissue diseases, degenerative problems, soft-tissue rheumatism and metabolic bone diseases.

Complete care for all musculoskeletal conditions

Rheumatology is the speciality that deals with disorders of the joints, muscles and connective tissue, many of which are related to the immune system. Patients of all ages with musculoskeletal conditions are treated at MIOT International. A diagnosis is made based on the patient’s symptoms, clinical examination and laboratory investigations.

Most rheumatic conditions are managed with the latest disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, including biologic therapies such as anti-TNF drugs and intra-articular steroids. Physiotherapy is offered for pain relief, to strengthen muscles and to prevent deformity. Patients with structural damage to their joints are referred to our Department of Orthopaedics for corrective surgery.
