Arthritis and other rheumatic diseases are characterized by pain, swelling, and limited movement in joints and connective tissues in the body. Millions of Americans have some form of arthritis.
Arthritis, which literally means inflammation of a joint (where two or more bones meet), actually refers to more than 100 different diseases.
Arthritis and other rheumatic diseases are often mistakenly associated with old age, because osteoarthritis (the most common form of arthritis) occurs more often among older people. However, arthritis and other rheumatic diseases affect people of all ages.

Many organizations recommend screening for colon cancer or colon polyps at age 50, earlier if you have a family history or other risk factors.
Problems that would cause your doctor to recommend a colonoscopy include early cancer symptoms, red or swollen tissue, open sores or bleeding. Additionally, your doctor may order a colonoscopy in order to determine and treat unexplained, long-term diarrhea or bleeding in your GI tract.

A type of lung disease marked by permanent damage to tissues in the lungs, making it hard to breathe. COPD includes chronic bronchitis, in which the bronchi (large air passages) are inflamed and scarred, and emphysema, in which the alveoli (tiny air sacs) are damaged. It develops over many years and is usually caused by cigarette smoking. Also called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Diabetes is a serious disease, which, if not controlled, can be life threatening. It is often associated with long-term complications that can affect every system and part of the body.
Diabetes can, among other things, contribute to eye disorders and blindness, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, limb amputation, and nerve damage. It can affect pregnancy and cause birth defects, as well.
Although diabetes is a chronic and incurable disease (with the exception of gestational diabetes), with proper medical care, clinical therapies, diet, hygiene, and exercise, symptoms and complications can be successfully treated and managed.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in adults in the United States. We strive to prevent heart disease among our patients and also work with those who have been diagnosed with heart disease to lead a healthy life. Heart disease (also known as cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease) is a term used to describe several problems related to plaque buildup in the walls of the arteries. As plaque builds up, the arteries narrow, which makes it more difficult for blood to flow. The narrowing of the arteries puts you at an increased risk for heart attack or stroke. Recognizing signs and symptoms of a stroke are very important for you and your loved ones.

High blood pressure
Also known as hypertension, high blood pressure is defined as a blood pressure of 140/90 or higher. Hypertension usually has no symptoms. It can harm the arteries and increase the risk of stroke, heart attack, kidney failure, and blindness.

Cholesterol is a type of fat (lipid) that the body needs for many important functions, such as producing new cells. High cholesterol increases the risk of developing heart disease and stroke.

Influenza (or flu) is a highly contagious viral respiratory tract infection. About 5% to 20% of people in the U.S. get the flu each year. Influenza usually comes on abruptly, with fever, muscle aches, sore throat, and a nonproductive cough. The most common form is Influenza A.

Urinary tract infections
Urinary tract infections describe a health problem that results from a bacterial infection along the urinary tract. An infection occurs when microorganisms, usually bacteria from the digestive tract, cling to the opening of the urethra, travel up into the bladder and/or kidney, and begin to multiply.

Most of us take wound healing for granted. If you get a small cut, you may clean and cover it with a bandage, and move on with your life. Yet under that bandage (or in the open air), the body orchestrates a complex cascade of events designed to heal wounds big and small.
