Rheumatology is a branch of medicine dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases involving the joints, muscles and connective tissue (soft tissues). Specialists trained in this field of medicine are called Rheumatologists. There are more than 100 different conditions which come under the banner of rheumatology including gout, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, scleroderma, ankylosing spondylitis, vasculitis and osteoporosis among many others. Patients with arthritis have multiple symptoms but the common ones are pain, stiffness, swelling, redness and warmth over the affected joints and general symptoms like feeling tired, unwell, fever, rashes and others.
The treatments of all rheumatological conditions are offered in our department including biologic medications which are administered in the infusion centre. The department is backed by state of the art immunology laboratory providing excellent services and newer diagnostics assays in the diagnosis of rheumatological conditions (e.g myositis profile assay for patients with inflammatory muscle disease).
