Rheumatology

The latest, technologically advanced medications are proving effective in treating joint disease. Medication and exercise are reducing the effects of age as well as wear and tear on our joints. Treatments for autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, are more helpful than ever, and getting better.

Common Diagnoses

Rheumatoid arthritis is the most common chronic inflammatory arthritis and classically involves multiple small joints of both hands and/or feet. It can also involve other joints, including the knees, ankles, elbows, and shoulders. A lot of progress has occurred over the last 20 years in understanding the underlying causes of many inflammatory joint diseases. Our specialists have access to new imaging technologies that can diagnose diseases earlier and multiple medication options that can help patients return to normal function.
