I am a Consultant Rheumatologist & Physician at Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust having
completed my Rheumatology & Internal Medicine speciality training in the East of England in 2013.
I undertook my junior doctor training in Swansea. Having obtained membership of Royal College of Physicians London (MRCP) in March 2007, I commenced higher specialist training in Rheumatology & General Medicine before joining Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridge to pursue clinical research in 2010. Same year, I achieved MRCP in Rheumatology too. I finished research in 2012 and joined Luton & Dunstable University Hospital as a final year registrar until was appointed in the current role.

I have been involved in more than 60 clinical trials utilising biological therapies for autoimmune conditions. My other main interests include early inflammatory arthritis including ultrasound use and metabolic bone health. Over the past five years, I have authored over 100 abstracts, presented at international conferences and published more than 25 papers in peer reviewed journals.
If you have painful joints, stiffness and/or joint swelling then you could have any one of 207 types of arthritis. I lead a national award winning early arthritis service
If you have any of the predisposing conditions such as psoriasis, uveitis/iritis, inflammatory bowel disease and you develop joint pain, it could be spondyloarthropathy. I lead on research in such conditions
If you are over 50 or younger with high risk factors such as chronic disease, steroid use or hormonal disorder, you will need bone health screening. I lead innovative metabolic bone health service
If you have longstanding back or muscle pain and there is diagnostic uncertainty, I can help you reach a diagnosis and formulate a management plan
If you have multisystem complaints e.g. rashes, ulcers, breathing problems with joint/muscle pain, it could be connective tissue disease. I lead a multi-disciplinary service and can help you
Made everything clear and easy to understand.

I've been in pain for so long and my life has been flipped upside down and I've been desperate for so long. I've felt neglected by so many doctors not willing to do a bit of investigation into my condition. However, I felt Dr Nisar actually listened to me and I'm hoping I can see him sometime soon.

The doctor asked me a lot of questions and listened to all I had to say. He made me feel at ease and I am confident with his diagnosis

We felt we were being listened to and a diagnosis of my wife's concerns was being considered.

Dr Nisar was welcoming, listened to me and ensured I had all I needed to try and make me more comfortable.

I was recommended to Dr Nisar by an NHS consultant. I am fully satisfied with both the consultations I had with Dr Nisar. Thank you.

I had a chronic condition which Dr Nisar diagnosed and specified treatment for. The outcome appears to have been successful and I would be very happy to see him again should there be any recurrence of the condition in future. I found his manner very pleasant. The reasons for my health problem were difficult to appreciate for someone such as myself, with a non-medical background, and I found him very helpful in explaining these.

Dr Nisar fully understood my condition and put the wheels in motion to resolve it. Very impressed .
