Dr Roger Wolman, Consultant in Rheumatology and Sport and Exercise Medicine

Personal treatment philosophy:

"I strongly believe in a wholistic approach when treating my patients and therefore want to understand how their musculoskeletal disorder is affecting them. I also have a strong belief in the benefit of exercise as a treatment for many diseases (often far more effective than tablets). I will therefore often look at ways that exercise could be incorporated into the management regime that I discuss with my patients."
