The role of a rheumatologist is to treat, diagnose and manage patients with arthritis or other rheumatic diseases affecting the joints, muscles, soft tissues, bones and other internal organs. Because rheumatic diseases such as lupus, tendinitis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are very complex, patients benefit from the care of a rheumatologist who is an expert in this field of medicine. Rheumatologists aim to improve a patient's quality of life by providing treatment options or medications, coping mechanisms, techniques for preventing disability or regaining function and more.

  • Arthritis
  • Rheumatic diseases affecting the joints, muscles, soft tissues, bones and other internal organs such as lupus, tendinitis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis
