Dr Deepak Jadon has been a Consultant Rheumatologist at Addenbrooke's Hospital (Cambridge University Hospitals NHSFT) since February 2016, and is Director of the Rheumatology Research Unit.
He is expert in managing all inflammatory rheumatological diseases (as listed below), and is particularly expert in psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Dr Jadon gives talks on these conditions at international and national medical meetings, and publishes internationally-recognised book chapters and research papers on these diseases. He also contributes to several international steering committees advancing the treatment, care and research of PsA and AS.
Having grown up in Cardiff, Dr Jadon 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 in Bath (2007 to 2015), where he also completed a PhD thesis in rheumatology from the University of Bath.
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.
