Rheumatology

An advanced approach to the treatment of complex conditions.

Rheumatology at St. Vincent’s addresses conditions involving joints, soft tissues (such as ligament, tendon, muscle, nerve, and skin), autoimmune diseases and others. Because treatment of such conditions and diseases requires a truly multidisciplinary approach, our rheumatologists often work in concert with our extended network of experts specializing in areas such as cardiology, pulmonology, immunology, hematology, urology, pain treatment, and radiology.

Leading-edge technologies and equipment at St. Vincent’s support these experts in their evaluation, consulting, diagnosis and treatment process. This comprehensive approach provides our area and surrounding communities with the finest medical resources available to address the complex nature of rheumatic diseases.
