Rheumatology

Rheumatology

Rheumatology is a branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis. Our goal is to help you feel better by understanding your health concerns and planning an appropriate treatment plan to improve your quality of life.

Rheumatic diseases consist of such conditions as:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Lupus
  • Myositis
  • Many types of autoimmune diseases
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Osteoporosis

There are more than 100 different types of arthritis that a rheumatologist evaluates and treats. It is important to accurately diagnose the type of arthritis a patient has to optimally treat that patient.

Rheumatologists also treat various auto-immune disorders such as:

  • Systemic lupus
  • Erythematosus
  • Scleroderma
  • Polymyositis
  • Various forms of vasculitis

Our rheumatologists have expertise in using aggressive immunosuppressive medications that are needed to treat these potentially aggressive and life-threatening conditions.
