I am a full time NHS consultant rheumatologist at St Luke's hospital and the lead of the rheumatology department in Bradford Teaching Hospitals. I have been trained in the
the regional and national center of excellence in Leeds and worked with many international leader in rheumatology. I also worked in different hospitals across the Yorkshire and Humber region, had spent few years as lecturer in rheumatology at the regional centre of excellence at Chapel Allerton hospital and had completed MSc and postgraduate medical doctor-ship (MD) degrees from university of Leeds.
I am an honorary senior lecturer in rheumatology at the University of Leeds leading on research that investigate rheumatological diseases stratification using imaging and more recent work including validation of joints ultrasound in inflammatory arthritis and lupus. Most of my research was presented in multiple national and international conferences such as British society of rheumatologist (BSR) and The European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) and have been published in the highest impact rheumatology journals.
I am a national and international tutor of musculoskeletal ultrasound currently running once weekly ultrasound list in St Lukes hospital and do half a session a week for Chapel allerton hospital to perform ultrasound guided joints biopsy.
I always feels dedicated to help people and try my best to do that as if I am helping my own family. I am currently providing private consultation and advice at the Yorkshire clinic.
