Patient Review Highlights
I can not ask anything better than him. He is a very positive and soft spoken doctor. Always tries to encourage patient. My wife is a case of Anky loosing Spondylitis from last 8 years and unable to live normal life. May to December 2015 was worst phase of her since she had almost lost mobility and infact was unable to sleep entire night because of pain and stiffness in entire body. We consulted Dr. Nilesh in December 2015 and then everything started turning positive in our favour. The oral medicine SAAZ 500 which was never suited her body due to Gastric issue, started giving positive results without side effect. She was given Anti TNF very safely and that changed her life. She is living normal life now and presently undergoing taper course of Anti TNF. Oral medicine like Saaz and Nucoxia is not giving any side effects now. Thank you for giving her life back .
I found the answers provided by the Dr. Nilesh Nolkha to be very helpful, well-reasoned, sensible and professional. Tanx a lot.Ur right in ur words n i have checked if steroids are used,but noy initial treatment was allopathy which gave good results, I gradually stopped allopathy pain killers n started ayyuveda. I hope all symptoms get cleared but the RA factor should also diminish. Are there any tests to check RA improved?

I was treated for Ankylosing Spondylitis under Dr Neelesh, while he was undergoing DM at KGMC Lucknow. My problem is under control. His knowledge in Auto immune diseases and Rheumotology is immense. His communication with patients is worth emulating by other Doctor. Lots of patients miss him at KGMC. With his help lots of patients are living pain free life. Apart from good Doctor he is a great human being.
Really appreciate the proactiveness and quick response of Dr.Nilesh. I am glad i found him on Lybrate. I can recommend his services to anyone who is seeking help with Arthritis and allied issues. Thank you for the help doctor! Vamshi

What is Rheumatology?
Rheumatology is a field of medicine, which deals with diseases having joint pain, arthritis and other related symptoms. It derives its origin from word ‘rheumatism’, which means anything related to joint or body pain.

What is Arthritis?
Arthritis means joint pain associated with inflammation (redness, warmth and swelling). All joint pains are not arthritis.
All joint pains are not arthritis.
Most rheumatology diseases are a particular type of arthritis. However, depending on disease type, they can affect any organ of the body. Thus, they can be serious diseases too. They even affect children and young people.
Rheumatology diseases are autoimmune diseases
Rheumatic diseases are often autoimmune in nature. Autoimmune diseases are diseases, where a part of one’s own immune system automatically starts acting against itself. It is unknown why this ‘auto’ ‘immune’ activation causes problems only in a few. Note, it is not the low immunity, but over active immunity, which is the problem. Over active immunity loves to hit joints, this is why most rheumatic diseases have arthritis.
Who is a Rheumatologist?
Rheumatologist is a physician doctor, who is specially trained to investigate & treat various types of arthritis and rheumatic diseases with medicines. They are also commonly known as ‘joint pain or arthritis’ doctors. They are different from orthopaedic doctors, who are surgeons. However, both type of doctors need to work together, at times, to treat some patients.
It is necessary to start treatment early if you suffer from rheumatic illness. As immunity is over active in these diseases, the medicines used to treat these diseases regulate and sometimes suppress the immune system. Early effective treatment helps prevent serious joint damage and can help save life in serious rheumatic disease.
