Rheumatology

The rheumatology practice provides a top sub-specialist examination in patients with locomotor system diseases. In addition to the joint musculoskeletal system, rheumatic diseases also bring about changes to the inner constraints, such as the lungs, heart, central nervous system, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and others. The skin as a large organ is often affected by rheumatic diseases.

The rheumatic diseases include many groups of diseases such as:
Inflammatory joint diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, serologically negative arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis)
Degenerative rheumatic diseases (Osteoarthritis of peripheral joints and spinal cord),
Metabolic Rheumatic Diseases (Gout and Osteoporosis)
Systemic rheumatic diseases of connective tissue (Systemic lupus, systemic sclerosis, polymyositis, vasculitis, etc.)
In rheumatology there is a multidisciplinary approach involving other specialties such as orthopedists, neurologists, physicians and others.

The rheumatologist needs to manage rheumatic diseases. The first is making the right diagnosis, differential diagnosis and treatment. The treatment is usually medicated, intra-articular injections of certain medications, education and counseling of the patient about rheumatic disease, the undesirable effects of possible therapy. A rheumatologist should be visited at the lowest suspicion of rheumatic disease, and there are certainly opportunities to discover other diseases that have rheumatic disorders.
