>> Show more information about this practice/clinic

At the Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Clinic we offer a wide range of general medical and rheumatology services. We also treat chronic soft tissue injuries, and joint dislocations in all patients who have chronic injuries. I have sub-specialised in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, including the pain/injury related processes with it, and use prolotherapy in these patients with very good results. As New Zealand doesn’t have any other EDS specialists yet, I look to, and rely on, our international EDS team for guidance when patients have complex issues.

At the moment I am only able to offer advice and guidance to GPs or other doctors or health care professionals with EDS or potential EDS patients. An actual clinic may be possible in the 2nd half of 2019. I am able to offer imaging guided sclerosant prolotherapy. In the public hospital service this must be a specialist referral and the patient in the Bay of Plenty District Health Board catchment area. Broader options for privately funded patients in private practice.
