Overview of services
Rheumatology is musculoskeletal medicine, with a focus on autoimmune disease broadly defined as vasculitis, arthritis and autoimmune connective tissue disease. These diseases can affect all of the organs in the human body, and a wholistic approach to health is essential. Rheumatologists also treat certain metabolic conditions such as gout and osteoporosis.
Trauma related musculoskeletal conditions, such as those sustained in motor vehicle accidents, or at work, are better served by other clinicians.
