Rheumatology

Rheumatology is a branch of medicine focused on musculoskeletal and autoimmune conditions.

These conditions cause pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints, muscles, bones, and other areas. At AdvantageCare Physicians, our Rheumatologists can treat a number of conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Chronic back pain
  • Gout
  • Osteoporosis
  • Tendinitis

Patients should see a Rheumatologist if they have persistent joint or muscle pain, or a family history of musculoskeletal or autoimmune diseases. If left unchecked, joint pain can cause permanent damage without proper treatment. Our Rheumatologists work with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan, such as:

  • Infusion therapy
  • Local injections of Hyalgan, Supartz, or Corticosteroids
  • Medication
  • Physical therapy

In some cases, surgery or evaluations from other specialists may be considered. To make an appointment, please call 646-680-4227.
