Expert Rheumatology Care at Providence
Rheumatology is a sub-specialty in internal medicine and pediatrics, devoted to diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases. Rheumatologists deal mainly with clinical problems involving joints, soft tissues, autoimmune diseases, vasculitis, and connective tissue disorders.
Many of these diseases are now known to be disorders of the immune system, and rheumatology is increasingly the study of immunology.
