Rheumatology

Rheumatism is a non-specific term used to describe any painful disorder affecting the joints, muscles, connective tissues, soft tissues around the joints and bones. Rheumatological disorders also include rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout and systemic lupus erythematosus.

Rheumatology is a rapidly evolving medical specialty, with advancements due to new scientific discoveries related to immunology of these disorders. Most successful treatment options are based on clinical research in immunology and the resulting improved understanding of the genetic basis of rheumatological disorders. Future treatment may even include gene therapy as well.

Our medical approach to the treatment of rheumatological disorders can help many patients with rheumatism lead a near-normal life.
