About Dr Ilana Ginges

Ilana has expertise in all types of arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, gout and lupus. Caring for women with arthritis throughout the childbearing years and beyond is a particular area of interest. Her paediatric training gives her good insights into treating young adults with arthritis as they transition from childhood. She treats patients holistically, with an open-minded and compassionate approach. She aims to empower patients through education about their condition and by shared decision making. 

Ilana graduated with First Class Honours from University of New South Wales 1996. She completed a Diploma of Child Health and two years of Paediatric training, and then obtained her Fellowship with the Royal Australian College of Physicians in adult Rheumatology. She also has a Graduate Certificate in Clinical Epidemiology and was recently awarded a Certificate in Clinician Performed Ultrasound. She uses the best available scientific evidence to guide treatment decisions.
