Comprehensive list of all rheumatologists in Kenya with their contacts and location

Here is a comprehensive list of all rheumatologists in Kenya with their contacts and location:

But before the list, it is important to understand the difference between rheumatologists and Orthopedics because they work together. 

Rheumatologists and orthopedists are both medical specialists who treat conditions related to the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. However, there are some key differences between the two specialties.

Rheumatologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic diseases, which are conditions that affect the joints, muscles, and connective tissues. Some common rheumatic diseases include arthritis, lupus, and osteoporosis. Rheumatologists are also trained to manage chronic rheumatic diseases and provide support and education to patients.

Orthopedists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries and diseases of the bones, joints, and muscles. Some common orthopedic conditions include fractures, sprains, strains, and degenerative joint disease. Orthopedists may perform surgery to repair or replace damaged bones and joints.

Here is a table that summarizes the key differences between rheumatologists and orthopedists:

Characteristic Rheumatologist Orthopedist
Specialty Internal medicine or pediatrics Surgery
Focus Rheumatic diseases (arthritis, lupus, osteoporosis, etc.) Injuries and diseases of the bones, joints, and muscles (fractures, sprains, strains, degenerative joint disease, etc.)
Treatment Medication, physical therapy, education, and support Surgery, medication, physical therapy


Depending on your symptoms and medical history, you may need to see either a rheumatologist or an orthopedist for your condition. You can consult your primary care provider to get a referral or recommendation for the appropriate specialist.

If you are experiencing pain or other problems with your joints, muscles, or bones, it is important to see a doctor to determine the cause and get the appropriate treatment. Your primary care doctor can refer you to a rheumatologist or orthopedist, depending on your specific needs
