Rheumatologists treat many conditions that may be difficult to diagnose. If there is no known cause for your joint pain, your primary care provider may refer you to a rheumatologist. If you experience any of the following, it could indicate an inflammatory disorder:

• Pain in more than one joint
• Joint pain without a known cause such as injury
• Joint pain that’s accompanied by chest pain, fatigue, fever, rash or stiffness
• Joint pain along with back pain
• Joint pain with psoriasis
• Unexplained fever, sweats or weight loss

While both orthopedists and rheumatologists focus on a patient’s joints, muscles and bones, only rheumatologists study the causes, impact and treatments of inflammatory autoimmune disorders.

Why Choose ONS for Rheumatology?

When looking at musculoskeletal care, orthopedics and rheumatologists go hand-in-hand. At ONS, our orthopedic surgeons collaborate with our rheumatologist to care for patients with inflammatory diseases who may require orthopedic surgical treatment.

Our rheumatologist is a board-certified internist who completed additional training in the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis and inflammatory and autoimmune conditions. She works closely with patients to identify the root of their pain in order to determine a correct diagnosis to start targeted and accurate treatment.
