    Hi @nusaceningan19 ,

    Thank you and welcome to the online community :)

    You can use our 'Living with arthritis' forum thread to ask others this, I've linked the thread below. If you're asking about finding a private rheumatologist, you can use Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN) to find a professional. You'll also find this linked below.

    Best wishes,

    Sharmin - Mod :)

    Need more help - call our Helpline on 0800 5200 520 Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm

    I can't help you find a rheumatologist specialising i erosive OA. In fact I'd be a bit surprised if you could find one as it's quite rare. However, a teaching hospital is always more likely to have better qualified consultants.

    Also, this seems to be a comprehensive guide to the disease from a reliable site.

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    Hi @nusaceningan19

    I have found this paper published which might give you a starting point. If you copy and paste the title of the paper below into google or your preferred search engine it should take you directly to the article.

    Erosive osteoarthritis: a more severe form of radiographic hand osteoarthritis rather than a distinct entity

    Interestingly one of the organisations acknowledged and thanked for help with the research is Arthritis Research UK Primary Care Centre at Keele University.

    The document was published in 2014 but it does maybe give you some help or lead you to some people who may be able to help. This is a medical paper and full of medical terminology which your GP might help you with - if they're a good GP they might even be able to make contact with someone using this information for you.

    Love n hugs
