You will need to see a GP 10 minutes before your appointment to assess your symptoms and do a written referral to Dr. Dhafer. This will be provided to you FREE of charge.
This is an ultrasound of any musculoskeletal part of your body by a Consultant Radiologist. He will, if able and warranted, proceed to perform a guided Cortisone (Steroid) injection into the site of maximal inflammation. This may be done with or without a local anaesthetic.
There may be instances that the procedure may be refused. This may occur if you have contraindications to having a Steroid injection. It may also occur if there is clearly no inflammation seen and clinically an injection would not be warranted. In such circumstances, you will only be charged for the Ultrasound scan – which is £110.

(BUPA recognised Consultant)
Having graduated in 1999 from Babil University, Iraq, I earned my MBCHB degree. Having then been awarded a fellowship to study radiology as part of the Iraqi Board training program, I performed my foundation training in Babylon University Teaching Hospital between 1999 and 2001. My radiology training started in 2001.
In 2005, I left Iraq to come to the United Kingdom. I passed my language and medical exams in 2006 and received my GMC registration. After my honorary registrar job in St Mary’s Hospital in London, I joined the radiology training program in 2008. I was then granted a fellowship in MRI in 2009.
I began my Locum Consultant position at the Royal Free Hospital in June 2010, which was followed by a permanent position as a Consultant Musculoskeletal Radiologist in Epsom and St. Helier University Hospitals.
I am a member of the British and European Societies of Skeletal Radiology.
With over 5 years’ experience in both NHS and private hospitals, I have performed more than 10,000 image guided musculoskeletal injections in the NHS and private sectors.
Currently, I am leading the MRI unit in St Helier Hospital. I present the radiology aspect in the Rheumatology and Trauma and Orthopaedic meetings. Further, I supervise and teach Junior Specialist Registrars and Radiographers during their reporting sessions.
I am involved in the teaching and research process and have published a few papers and case reports. Currently I am a sub-investigator in 3 randomised clinical trials with the South West Elective Orthopaedic centre.
