“The nature of the conditions we are dealing with results in long term treatment. These are chronic conditions and quite often, multi-organ conditions as well. We get to know our patients, we know their medical history but also their families and the ups and downs that go along with the conditions they are living with,” explains Dr Gareth Tarr, rheumatologist.
The Institute of Orthopaedics and Rheumatology (IOR) at Mediclinic Winelands Orthopaedic Hospital, is dedicated to the management and rehabilitation of non-emergency musculoskeletal conditions.
