A rheumatologist is an internist trained and experience in the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis and other diseases of the joints, muscles and bones.

Many types of rheumatic diseases are not easily identified in the early stages. Rheumatologists are trained to do the detective work necessary to discover the cause of swelling and pain. It’s important to determine a correct diagnosis early so that appropriate treatment can begin early. Some musculoskeletal disorders respond best to treatment in the early stages of the disease.

Because some rheumatic diseases are complex, one visit to a rheumatologist may not be enough to determine a diagnosis and course of treatment. These diseases often change or evolve over time. People of any age need to see a Rheumatologist for a wide range of problems, including:
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Sjögren’s Syndrome
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Bursitis
  • Psoriatic Arthritis
  • Gout
  • Tendonitis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Vasculitis
