Conditions We Treat

Ankylosing Spondylitis

A type of inflammatory arthritis that most often affects men, ankylosing spondylitis typically causes changes to the spine and large joints that can seriously affect your ability to get around and general health.

Gout

A form of arthritis, gout is caused by the buildup of crystals made of a substance called uric acid in your joints. Gout causes painful and stiff joints—it often starts in your big toe.

 Lupus

Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can cause inflammation, pain, and damage in various parts of your body as the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. In the most serious cases, it can affect vital areas, including your brain, kidneys, and coronary arteries.

Osteoarthritis

A degenerative joint disease, also known as “wear and tear”, osteoarthritis, occurs when the cartilage or cushion between joints breaks down, causing pain, swelling, and stiffness at those connection points.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis causes problems primarily in the joints of your hands, wrists, and feet, that may lead you to seek treatment include pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of physical function.

Scleroderma

This autoimmune disease causes hardening and tightening of your skin and connective tissues.

Vasculitis

Vasculitis is a condition that involves inflammation in your blood vessels, causing them to narrow, weaken, or bulge.
