The practice of Dr Cathy Spargo and Dr Rehana Bhorat consists of two experienced rheumatologists, who look after patients falling under the wide spectrum of rheumatological diseases, which may include (but is not limited to) rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, ankylosing spondylitis and systemic lupus as well as osteoporosis and a number of other autoimmune diseases such as polymyalgia rheumatica and Sjogren’s syndrome. Chronic pain syndrome and fibromyalgia patients are also looked after by the dedicated rheumatology team. Both rheumatologists have extensive clinical experience as well as clinical trial experience in excess of 10 years.
There is an additional component to the practice, notably the clinical trial unit, where patients may voluntarily participate in studies looking at the use of new compounds in the treatment of arthritis. This unit is very ably supervised by Lee Webster, who has significant clinical trial experience.
The rest of the team includes our support staff who liaise with radiology and pathology, and who ensure the smooth running of the practice.
We aim to make your rheumatology visit as pleasant as possible and strive to provide up-to-date rheumatology care.
