We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal and rheumatic disorders. Rheumatic diseases, such as arthritis, are a group of more than 100 disorders that cause swelling and pain in the joints. These diseases can also cause inflammation in the connective tissues of other parts of the body and can affect adults and children of all ages.
