Sydney Spondyloarthritis Centre
BJC Health was conceived in 2002 as a multidisciplinary clinic targeting arthritis & musculoskeletal disease.
We recognized that the way forward in improving the treatment of acute and chronic arthritis & musculoskeletal injuries would involve a coordinated, comprehensive service that no one doctor or allied health professional could reasonably provide.
Arthritis requires an Integrated Approach. We call this Connected Care.
In 2011, BJC Health applied this principle to the treatment of Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) & related Spondyloarthritis (SpA) by establishing the Sydney Spondyloarthritis Centre.
