Patient Care

Rheumatologists are experts in treating arthritis and autoimmune diseases. Rheumatologists are specially trained to diagnose and treat inflammatory diseases of the joints and soft tissues (tendons, ligaments, muscles, and bones), and care for patients with arthritis, gout, tendonitis and a variety of other joint and connective tissue disorders.

Inflammation of the joints, muscles and other soft tissues are caused by wear and tear, infection, or disorders of the immune system, called autoimmune diseases. These latter conditions include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, polymyositis, polymyalgia rheumatica, and many forms of vasculitis. Recent advancements in understanding the causes of arthritis led to the introduction of new medications that revolutionized the treatment of many debilitating joint diseases.
