Portland's paediatric rheumatology department aims to provide the highest standard clinical care and create better outcomes for children with rheumatic diseases. Accurate diagnosis and early intervention to treat rheumatic disease in childhood can minimise short and long-term disability.
The most common childhood rheumatic diseases that we treat are:
- Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (Juvenile)
- Juvenile dermatomyositis
- Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA)
Our team of paediatric rheumatologists specialise in providing comprehensive care to children with rheumatologic diseases, and advice and support to their families. They are supported by clinical nurse specialists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, podiatrists and psychologists (some of whom are based at Great Ormond Street Hospital). Our team is highly skilled in providing different diagnoses, diagnostic interventions and cutting-edge therapy – and renowned for achieving favourable outcomes in terms of both the control of rheumatic diseases and prevention of disability.
