Dr Malaviya has gained considerable clinical experience during his time as a consultant, managing complex musculoskeletal disease and has developed an appreciation of the psychosocial impact chronic disease and pain has on the lives of both patients and their families. There is growing evidence that many autoimmune diseases present in clusters across various body systems such as the gut, the spine and the joints. Therefore, he takes a holistic approach - taking into account the body as a whole - when making his diagnoses and offering treatments. He strongly believes that appropriate early intervention can prevent long term chronic disease and disability.
