About me

Dr Rakhi Seth is a Consultant Rheumatologist at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust where she leads the Early Inflammatory Arthritis service, in a centre that was awarded the European centre of excellence award (EULAR) in 2015.

Dr Seth offers patients a unique, efficient and comprehensive service to diagnose and effectively manage any musculoskeletal condition, with the aim of improving symptoms, and optimising quality of life.

Dr Seth is an expert in the diagnosis and management of gout, and has published Cochrane systematic literature reviews and international guidelines on how best to manage the condition. She also has a clinical interest in the diagnosis and management of inflammatory arthritis (including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis), osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and autoimmune connective tissue diseases such as lupus.
