Rheumatology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to the musculoskeletal system and on conditions of the immune system, frequently referred to as rheumatic diseases.
Diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, and lupus, among others, have an autoimmune component, in which the immune system itself damages various organs and specific musculoskeletal structures. This results in pain, stiffness and function loss of the joints, muscles, and bones due to inflammation and destruction of the affected structures.
Rheumatology is also important in terms of related research to find more effective and targeted treatment for what causes patient complaints. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any complaints or questions you wish to clarify.”
