About me

Dr Deepak Jadon is a Consultant in Rheumatology, Director of the Rheumatology Research Unit, and lead for psoriatic arthritis at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge University Hospitals NHSFT.

Having grown up in Cardiff, he graduated from the University of Wales College of Medicine in 2003, and then undertook specialist training in rheumatology at the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases (Bath, 2007 to 2015), where he also completed his PhD thesis in rheumatology.

The principles of his rheumatology practice are to:
- spend time listening carefully to his patients so that he deeply understands their symptoms, needs and impact on their life;
- thoroughly examine his patients, thinking beyond just their arthritis;
- apply established and novel imaging and laboratory tests to better clarify his patients’ disease;
- safely use established and cutting-edge treatments for his patients, using his knowledge from being Director of the Rheumatology Research Unit;
- counsel and educate his patients to empower them to best manage their disease;
- have open, frank and jargon-free conversations with his patients to ensure that he is best addressing the issues important to them.

Dr Jadon has particular expertise in the investigation and management of back pain (acute and chronic), rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout; osteoarthritis, and fibromyalgia. He uses musculoskeletal ultrasound to help diagnose/ monitor arthritis, and to guide cortisone injections into joints and soft-tissues.

Dr Jadon is Director of the Rheumatology Research Unit at Cambridge University Hospitals NHSFT (Addenbrooke’s Hospital), where he leads a team of 5 research nurses, 4 rheumatology fellows, and 2 administrators. They are currently performing 24 clinical trials of novel cutting-edge medications for the treatment of arthritis and other rheumatological diseases. He is currently the principal / chief investigator on 14 of these studies.

He is an Honorary Senior Lecturer (associate-PI) in the Department of Medicine at the University of Cambridge. His academic research relates to biomarkers (genetic, serum, cellular and imaging) of psoriatic arthritis (PsA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

Dr Jadon is proud to be Head of E-learning at the University of Cambridge Medical (Clinical) School where he leads a team of 4 educational technologists to provide cutting-edge, dynamic and interactive educational resources for our year 4 to 6 medical students.

He has several high-impact peer-reviewed publications in international rheumatology journals as listed below, mostly relating to psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, available at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=jadon+d
