Division of Rheumatology
The seven and board-certified and board eligible rheumatologists in the division have special expertise in a variety of arthritic and autoimmune diseases. We have special interests in autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, vasculitis, muscle inflammation, to name just a few. Treatment for these serious illnesses has improved dramatically over the past few years, and our physicians can help decide between the many options available.
We can also provide our expert opinion on treatment of osteoporosis and common arthritic diseases such as osteoarthritis, tendinitis, and back or neck arthritis. Treatment for osteoporosis is evolving, with new medications and new recommendations. Our Osteoporosis Center is outfitted with a new, state of the art DEXA scanner, and the scans are read by physicians with special training in this area.
