Paediatric Rheumatologists

What is a paediatric rheumatologist?

A paediatric rheumatologist is a doctor that cares for children with any musculoskeletal condition.

Common conditions include: hypermobility, growing pains, joint aches and mechanical pain, juvenile arthritis and more complex multi-system inflammatory disorders.

Our general paediatric team can assess, reassure you and treat your child for many of these concerns, but commonly refer for an opinion when needed.
