Rheumatologists deal mainly with immune-mediated disorders of the musculoskeletal system, soft tissues, autoimmune diseases, vasculitides, and inherited connective tissue disorders

Psoriatic arthritis

Psoriatic arthritis is a form of arthritis that affects some people who have psoriasis — a condition that features red patches of skin topped with silvery scales. Most people develop psoriasis first and are later diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, but the joint problems can sometimes begin before skin patches appear

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis, or RA, is an autoimmune and inflammatory disease, which means that your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake, causing inflammation (painful swelling) in the affected parts of the body. RA mainly attacks the joints, usually many joints at once.


Lupus (SLE) can affect the joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs. Symptoms vary but can include fatigue, joint pain, rash, and fever. These can periodically get worse (flare-up) and then improve. While there's no cure for lupus, current treatments focus on improving quality of life through controlling symptoms and minimizing flare-ups. This begins with lifestyle modifications, including sun protection and diet. Further disease management includes medications, such as anti-inflammatories and steroids.


Arthritis Management

There are a lot of things you can do to manage your arthritis. The day-to-day things you choose to do to manage your condition and stay healthy are “self-management” strategies and activities. Our Arthritis Program recommends self-management strategies for managing arthritis and its symptoms.

Practice these simple strategies to reduce symptoms and get relief so you can pursue the activities that are important to you. These strategies can even help you manage other chronic conditions you have.

  • Learn new self-management skills.
  • Improve or maintain function and quality of life.
  • Feel more in control of your health.
  • Manage pain and other symptoms.

Psoriasis Treatment

Psoriasis treatments aim to stop skin cells from growing so quickly and to remove scales. Options include creams and ointments (topical therapy), light therapy (phototherapy), and oral or injected medication.

Which treatments you use depends on how severe the psoriasis is and how responsive it has been to previous treatment. You might need to try different drugs or a combination of treatments before you find an approach that works for you. Usually, however, the disease returns.

  • Topical therapy
  • Light therapy
  • Oral or injected medications
  • Treatment considerations
  • Alternative medicine

Rheumatism Treatment

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that can affect more than just your joints. In some people, the condition can damage a wide variety of body systems, including the skin, eyes, lungs, heart and blood vessels.

An autoimmune disorder, rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body's tissues.

  • Tender, warm, swollen joints
  • Joint stiffness that is usually worse in the mornings and after inactivity
  • Fatigue, fever and loss of appetite

Gout Treatment

Gout is a common and complex form of arthritis that can affect anyone. It's characterized by sudden, severe attacks of pain, swelling, redness and tenderness in one or more joints, most often in the big toe.

An attack of gout can occur suddenly, often waking you up in the middle of the night with the sensation that your big toe is on fire. The affected joint is hot, swollen and so tender that even the weight of the bedsheet on it may seem intolerable.

  • Intense joint pain.
  • Lingering discomfort.
  • Inflammation and redness.
  • Limited range of motion.

Scleroderma Treatment

Scleroderma is a chronic, although rare, autoimmune disease in which normal tissue is replaced with dense, thick fibrous tissue. Normally, the immune system helps defend the body against disease and infection. In patients with scleroderma, the immune system triggers other cells to produce too much collagen (a protein). This extra collagen is deposited in the skin and organs, which causes hardening and thickening (similar to the scarring process).

Although it most often affects the skin, scleroderma also can affect many other parts of the body including the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, kidneys, heart, blood vessels, muscles and joints. Scleroderma in its most severe forms can be life-threatening.

  • Localized scleroderma
  • Diffuse scleroderma
  • Limited scleroderma

Rheumatology Services and Treatments

The immune system reacts to germs, viruses and injury by sending inflammation to the affected area. The inflammation is meant to surround and protect the delicate nerves and blood vessels in that area of the body. But when inflammation occurs unnecessarily, we call the condition an autoimmune disease.


Arthritis is the swelling and tenderness of one or more joints.The main symptoms of arthritis are joint pain and stiffness, which typically worsen with age.


Bursitis is a painful condition that affects the small, fluid-filled sacs — called bursae — that cushion the bones, tendons and muscles near your joints.


Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes pain all over the body, sleep problems, fatigue, and often emotional and mental distress.


A type of arthritis that occurs when flexible tissue at the ends of bones wears down.Joint pain in the hands, neck, lower back, knees, or hips is the most common symptom.

What Our Patients Says


For example, patients with inflammatory arthritis are generally at a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease, such as heart attack or stroke. While many times the risk factors for these conditions may not be addressed directly by your rheumatologist, asking if you should be screened for things such as high cholesterol by your primary care provider or another specialist is a good step in living well with your disease.
Exercise is important for everyone and in certain cases, it may be helpful to be referred to physical therapy to help improve your strength, flexibility, or balance prior to exercising on your own.
Smoking also makes inflammatory arthritis more difficult to treat. In many cases, your rheumatologist may ask you to address this with your primary care provider, but may know of specific resources available in your area.
