Our rheumatologists are experts in diagnosing, treating, and managing conditions that affect your joints, bones, tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
Rheumatologists provide specialized care for arthritis, other musculoskeletal disorders, and conditions such as lupus, fibromyalgia, and scleroderma. Many of these rheumatic conditions are autoimmune diseases—the result of your immune system mistakenly attacking healthy tissues. Symptoms may include pain, swelling, stiffness, and deformity.
The rheumatology team at Saratoga Hospital provides the latest, most effective treatments for a variety of conditions, including:
- Ankylosing spondylitis
- Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Thyroid diseases, including Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
Since most of these conditions require ongoing treatment, your rheumatologist will likely work with you and other providers to help reduce and manage your symptoms. Treatment options may include advanced medications delivered via or IV or infusion therapy. Physical therapy may be prescribed to help reduce joint pain or increase range of motion.
