Rheumatology is a subspecialty of internal medicine that is devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic diseases. Rheumatologists mainly deal with clinical problems involving joints, soft tissues, and related conditions of connective tissues.
Conditions we commonly treat include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Psoriatic arthritis
- Ankylosing spondylitis
Rheumatology is a rapidly evolving medical specialty; new scientific discoveries related to this specialty are largely related to better understanding of immunology of these disorders. Major rheumatology disorders are now described as autoimmune disorders, and most of the new treatment modalities are based on immunology.
At Tulsa Bone & Joint, our three fellowship trained rheumatologists are committed to helping patients with rheumatoid arthritis and related conditions. We also offer an on-site, state-of-the-art infusion clinic where rheumatology patients can receive infusion therapy for biologic agents in a comfortable environment
Currently, the practice of rheumatology is primarily based on clinical research. Evidence-based medical treatment of rheumatological disorders has helped patients lead a near-normal life without disabilities.
