Rheumatology

If you have knee pain or joint pain, it might be nothing to do with your bone or ligament and a doctor who specialised in rheumatology is the right one you should meet. Rheumatology is a subspecialty in internal medicine and pediatrics that deals with the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune diseases and heritable connective tissue disorders. A rheumatologist diagnoses and treats musculoskeletal disease and systemic autoimmune conditions. Unlike an orthopedist, rheumatologists do not perform surgery to treat joint disease. Furthermore, the goal of many rheumatologists is to find the underlying cause of rheumatic disease and conduct research to find better treatment options. Our rheumatologists at NSCMH is a physician who had special training and experience in diagnosing and treating these often complex diseases.
