We offer coordinated, multidisciplinary clinical care for people with rheumatoid and other types of inflammatory arthritis, as well as osteoarthritis and a variety of autoimmune diseases, including lupus, scleroderma, myositis, and vasculitis.

Our physicians are experts at diagnosing and treating more than 200 types of rheumatologic disorders, some of which are difficult to pinpoint. Rheumatic disorders affect the joints, muscles, and bones and often include autoimmune diseases that disrupt the body’s immune system by causing inflammation and breaking down connective tissue and related body structures.

We work closely with other specialists at Yale including pulmonologists, nephrologists, gastroenterologists, cardiologists, allergists, neurologists, dermatologists, surgeons, and orthopaedists to care for complex rheumatic and autoimmune diseases.
