Paediatric Rheumatologist Services and Physicians

As children grow, the injuries and medical problems that present in the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints (i.e. musculoskeletal conditions) often differ from conditions commonly seen in older patients.

Paediatric rheumatologists are paediatricians who have completed an additional 3 years of specialised training in paediatric rheumatic conditions. They are specialised in the diagnosis and care of inflammatory conditions of the musculoskeletal system as well as autoimmune mediated multi-system inflammation. They also receive specialised training in the management of mechanical and non-inflammatory musculoskeletal conditions including sports related injuries.
