Addressing the challenges faced by patients with all forms of inflammatory arthritis, our program focuses on three components: patient care, patient education, and clinical research designed to advance our knowledge and treatment of arthritis. We offer expertise in adult rheumatology, laboratory medicine, and radiology.
The key to the effective management of inflammatory arthritis begins with the correct diagnosis. We arrive at all decisions about medical therapy in collaboration with patients; each one is unique, and we aim to optimize the treatment of each individual. We work closely with our colleagues in physical and occupational therapy to ensure that patients have appropriate guidance in physical activities and rehabilitation, if indicated, and orthopaedic surgery to ensure they have access to up-to-date approaches in joint surgery, if necessary.
One of our main goals is to educate patients about their disease, appropriate therapies, and resources available to those living with inflammatory arthritis. We encourage patients and their family to participate in all aspects of decision-making about their disease management. We work together to help our patients achieve a high quality of life.
