Rheumatologists diagnose and treat arthritis and other rheumatic diseases which affect the joints, muscles, bones and sometimes other organs in the body (e.g., kidneys, lungs, blood vessels, brain). Because these diseases are often complex, patients benefit from the care of an expert.
Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, musculoskeletal pain disorders, gout, fibromyalgia, certain autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, vasculitis, antiphospholipid syndrome, and scleroderma are a few of the conditions that can be effectively managed by rheumatologists.
Working closely with patients, rheumatologists develop tailored treatment programs that can help patients maintain the best possible quality of life. Diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic disorders in the early stages of the disease can improve patient outcomes.
