Rheumatology Clinic

Rheumatic diseases can affect individuals of any gender and age group, with their roots in the immune system and inflammation. These persistent conditions have the potential to result in disability. The spectrum of rheumatic diseases is extensive, comprising over 100 conditions that involve degenerative or inflammatory issues affecting tendons, muscles, and bones. Examples include arthritis, gout, pseudogout, and trigger finger. Furthermore, rheumatic diseases encompass chronic and complex illnesses, immune system-related disorders, and conditions with unknown causes, such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), psoriatic arthritis, and scleroderma. Various factors, including genetics and conditions triggered by infectious enteritis or colitis, can contribute to the development of rheumatic diseases, leading to joint inflammations.

The Rheumatology Clinic at MedPark Hospital is fully equipped to offer diagnostic and therapeutic services for individuals with rheumatic diseases. Our team includes highly experienced rheumatic specialists, some certified by the American Board, and a multidisciplinary group of medical professionals working collaboratively to ensure prompt diagnosis and holistic treatment.
