Dr Millicent Stone
Dr Millicent Stone graduated from at The National University of Ireland in 1991 and undertook training in General Medicine and Rheumatology and a short residency in Ophthalmology.
She then undertook a Fellowship in Canada and trained as a Clinical Epidemiologist. She took up a Consultant Appointment at University of Toronto and St Michael’s Hospital in 2002 where she was appointed as an Associate Professor of Medicine. Dr Stone developed multi-disciplinary teams for the treatment of patients with Spondyloarthropathy and related conditions including inflammatory eye diseases.
She is considered a key opinion leader in her field and her work has been published in top quality peer review publications including Nature Genetics. Dr Stone moved back to London from North America to take up an exciting and unique post in the NHS at St Thomas Hospital in 2014 where she is appointed into the Department of Ophthalmology to work as a Consultant Rheum Ophthalmologist. This is the first appointment of its kind in the UK.
She has developed an expertise in inflammatory disorders of the eye and works closely alongside her Ophthalmology colleagues in treating patients with life and sight threatening conditions. Dr Stone has an interest in biologic agents for the treatment of inflammatory diseases. In addition to her interest in back pain and inflammatory eye diseases, Dr Stone has maintained her sub-specialty interest in Osteoporosis. Whilst in Toronto she helped run the metabolic bone program and became familiar with novel therapies and assessment of patients with complex needs surrounding bone health. She pursued this interest on her return to the UK working closely with Professor Tim Spector and the OP program at Guys with whom she retains close links.
She is a key opinion leader in the female athlete triad a condition which affects younger women and leads to fractures and surprisingly men too (where it is more correctly termed the boy athlete diad)! At London Bridge Hospital Dr Stone sees patients with back pain and osteoporosis. In addition, she is establishing a high quality program for the safe administration of biologics to inflammatory eye disease patients, which is an exciting initiative for the private sector. In her spare time, Dr Stone enjoys keeping fit by running and regularily participates in charity runs supporting cancer research. She also enjoys horse riding, tennis and the fine arts and most of all spending quality time with her family.
