Our physicians have special expertise in treating rheumatological conditions. Learn more below about the conditions we treat.
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory condition that occurs when your immune system mistakenly starts attacking healthy joints — primarily in your hands, wrists, and feet. Symptoms that may lead you to seek treatment include pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of physical function.
This degenerative joint disease, also known as “wear and tear” arthritis, occurs when the cartilage or cushion between joints breaks down, causing pain, swelling, and stiffness at those connection points.
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.
This autoimmune disease causes hardening and tightening of your skin and connective tissues.
Vasculitis is a condition that involves inflammation in your blood vessels, causing them to narrow, weaken, or bulge.
Gout is a form of arthritis 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.
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.
