RHEUMATOLOGY CLINIC

*

During the past decade a revolution has taken place in treatment of autoimmune diseases due to the development of new medications, chiefly of a biological nature, which dramatically improve the patient’s condition.

Rheumatology deals with diseases of the joints, connective tissues and soft tissues.

Joint diseases tend to be chronic and highly common. They are distinguished into three groups: inflammatory diseases, degenerative diseases, and fibromyalgia. The most common diseases are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and fibromyalgia.

Other inflammatory diseases include psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and inflammatory diseases of the vascular system. Inflammation of tendons and other structures near the joints are also treated in the rheumatology clinic. Most of these diseases are autoimmune, in which the body reacts against itself.
