Rheumatology represents a subspecialty in internal medicine and pediatrics, which is devoted to adequate diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases including clinical problems in joints, soft tissues, heritable connective tissue disorders, vasculitis and autoimmune diseases. Matrix Hospital's rheumatologists offer the highest quality care for patients with a wide variety of rheumatic disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis and other joint diseases, systemic lupus erythematosus, vasculitis syndromes, gout and others.
Since rheumatological diseases are often associated with other conditions, our goal is to provide individualized treatment based on each person's medical profile and to make every attempt to help each patient find relief. Our rheumatology staff focuses not only on our patients' "aches and pains", but on the whole person. We offer many activities that involve our patients, including support groups.
