Dr John Outhwaite is an experienced Consultant Rheumatologist and Physician in Orthopaedic Medicine. He specialises in complicated and persistently painful musculoskeletal conditions which are not suitable for surgical intervention.

Career to date

Dr Outhwaite qualified from Oxford University in 1979 and served five years in the Royal Army Medical Corps. He has worked in Rheumatology teaching units in Birmingham and London and has also been a Consultant Physician in Orthopaedic Medicine at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre for many years.

His particular interest is in patients with complicated problems and persistent painful conditions which have not responded to simple treatment regimes, and are not suitable for surgical treatment. These include whiplash injury, persistent low back pain, complex regional pain syndrome, fibromyalgia, and knee and foot pain. He provides comprehensive exercise techniques and functional restoration programmes.

Dr Outhwaite is part of the team of skilled consultants and physicians at The London Orthopaedic Clinic, based at King Edward VII’s Hospital. He works closely with multi-professional colleagues including pain consultants, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, cognitive psychologists and personal trainers.

The best overall experience I've ever had seeing a doctor. Came over from the US for a second opinion on MRI and CT Scans. Saw 3 doctors in one week and was about to give up from misguided diagnosis. At the last moment we booked an appointment was seen same day. Dr Outhwaite was extremely knowledgeable, thorough, patient in his explanations and our questions. A+++ experience. If only I had seen him sooner I could have saved tens of thousands of dollars. Thank you Dr. Outhwaite and team!!!
