What is Rheumatology?


Rheumatology is a specialised field of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of rheumatic diseases, which are conditions that affect the joints, muscles, bones, and connective tissues. If you are experiencing symptoms related to joint pain, inflammation, or autoimmune disorders, it is advisable to consult a rheumatologist. Common symptoms and conditions that warrant a visit to a rheumatology specialist include:

  • Persistent joint pain and stiffness
  • Inflammatory arthritis
  • Unexplained fatigue, fever, muscle pain, joint inflammation, and rash
  • Recurrent or chronic pain that affects multiple joints or soft tissues
  • Suspected connective tissue disease
  • Osteoporosis or metabolic bone diseases


Why Should You Choose Prince Court’s Rheumatologist?

Expertise and Specialisation

Prince Court Medical Centre stands out as the premier choice for individuals seeking exceptional care for rheumatic conditions. Our team comprises highly skilled and specialised rheumatologists who are dedicated to providing comprehensive and cutting-edge treatment options for a wide range of rheumatic disorders, including arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, and other autoimmune conditions.

Our rheumatologists are widely acknowledged as key opinion leaders in the field, consistently referred to by patients. They maintain a steadfast commitment to remaining at the forefront of rheumatology research and advancements. Through continuous education, participation in medical conferences, and seminars, our rheumatologists ensure they are up-to-date with the latest knowledge and skills. As a result, they offer evidence-based treatments and therapies, utilising the most recent medications such as monoclonal antibodies (biologics) and small molecules. Our rheumatologists prescribe and manage medications to effectively control inflammation, alleviate pain, and slow disease progression. This encompasses disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), biologic therapies, corticosteroids, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Advanced Technology

At Prince Court, we prioritise early and accurate diagnosis. Equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and advanced imaging technologies, such as ultrasound, CT scan, MRI and others, we precisely identify and evaluate rheumatic conditions. This enables us to initiate timely interventions and treatments, effectively minimising disease progression and enhancing overall quality of life.


Collaborative Approach

Collaboration is a fundamental aspect of our approach. Our rheumatologists work closely with other healthcare professionals, including physical therapists, occupational therapists, and pain management specialists, to provide comprehensive and integrated care. This multidisciplinary approach ensures that patients receive a well-rounded treatment plan that addresses not only the management of symptoms but also the enhancement of functionality and overall well-being.


Common Rheumatic Conditions


  • Inflammatory arthritis, like rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis
  • Systemic autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, systemic sclerosis (scleroderma), and Sjögren's syndrome
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Connective tissue diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, vasculitis, and mixed connective tissue disease
  • Soft tissue rheumatism like fibromyalgia, tendonitis, and bursitis
  • Osteoporosis and metabolic bone diseases
  • Crystal-related diseases, such as gout and pseudogout


Rheumatic Procedures

  • Joint Aspiration and Synovial Fluid Analysis – this procedure is performed to determine the cause of joint inflammation or infection by analysing the synovial fluid.
  • Arthrocentesis – it involves the removal of excess fluid from a swollen joint to relieve pain and improve joint function
  • Joint Injections – corticosteroids or other disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) can be injected into the joint to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and improve joint function
  • Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) – these tests evaluate nerve and muscle function, aiding in the diagnosis of conditions such as peripheral neuropathy or myopathy, which may be associated with certain rheumatic diseases
  • Infusion Therapies – intravenous medications are administered for certain rheumatic conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, or systemic lupus erythematosus
