Barwon Rheumatology Service

We have been involved primarily in studying treatments for rheumatoid arthritis, but also in investigating educational input to the management of rheumatoid arthritis and the impact of patient related outcomes in guiding therapy.

The research is done in our modern private clinic on Bellerine Street, with assistance Barwon Health and St John of God Health Care when required.
