RHEUMATOLOGY

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic autoimmune disorder that typically affects the synovial joints of the body, particularly in hands and feet. This creates wear and tear of fluid between the joints, causing painful swelling, bone erosion, and joint deformity. As an inflammatory disease, it can sometimes affect other organs of the body including but not limited to the skin, eyes, lungs and blood vessels
Rheumatoid Arthritis is progressive and most commonly begins to occur after age 40, much more commonly in women than men. Our facility offers both systemic and localized treatment including Remicade, Cimzia, and Orencia.
