Our Rheumatology Team
Rheumatologists help treat conditions across a variety of medical specialties. Some conditions that affect the heart, reproductive organs, bones and tendons cause painful inflammation and swelling. Our rheumatology team collaborates with other specialists to manage your symptoms and help you regain quality of life.
What is a rheumatologist?
A rheumatologist is a doctor who is specially trained to diagnose and treat painful swelling, inflammation and stiffness in the muscles, joints and tendons. Sometimes this pain is caused by an old, lingering injury. But often, it’s caused by a condition such as arthritis, gout, lupus or fibromyalgia.
