Rheumatology

A rheumatologist is an internist or pediatrician who is qualified by additional training and experience to diagnose and treat diseases of the joints, muscles and bones. Many rheumatologists conduct research to determine the cause and better treatments for these disabling and sometimes fatal diseases.

Rheumatologists treat arthritis, certain autoimmune diseases, musculoskeletal pain disorders and osteoporosis. There are more than 100 types of these diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, lupus, back pain, fibromyalgia and tendonitis. Some of these are very serious diseases that can be difficult to diagnose and treat.

Many types of rheumatic diseases are not easily identified in the early stages. Rheumatologists are specially trained to do the detective work necessary to discover the cause of swelling and pain. It’s important to determine a correct diagnosis early so that appropriate treatment can begin. For more information on rheumatology associated diseases, illnesses and treatment options, please contact the office of our board certified specialist to request an appointment.
