Rheumatology

Rheumatology

When your immune system starts sending inflammation to body parts that don’t need it, you may develop a rheumatic condition, such as gout, scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, or ulcerative colitis. We get to the bottom of your symptoms for a diagnosis, no matter how difficult it is to diagnose, putting you at the center of your care for a plan that you can feel good about.

The North Memorial Health Advantage

  • North Memorial Health rheumatologists are certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, and provide diagnosis and treatment for a wide array of adult rheumatologic disorders.
  • Our rheumatology service uses the latest medications available. Treatment may involve medications, including immunosuppressants, injections or infusions, or referrals to other specialists.
  • With an accurate diagnosis and a shared understanding of your illness, you and your rheumatologist will work together to design a treatment program aimed at managing pain, reducing inflammation and ensuring your quality of life.
  • Rheumatic diseases are sometimes complex in nature and difficult to diagnose. Your rheumatologist will gather a complete medical history and perform a physical examination, review previous pertinent investigations, and order additional laboratory tests and imaging to come to a diagnosis.
