Rheumatology

Joint and muscle pain, which isn't just for the elderly anymore, can be immobilizing. Lutheran Medical Group's board-certified rheumatologists, who diagnose and treat joint, soft tissue and connecting tissue disorders, can assess and treat more than 100 rheumatologic ailments. In addition to relieving the symptoms, often times, the progression of the disease can be slowed and sometimes stopped thanks to the specialized care available.

Because rheumatologic disorders can also involve other organ systems, LMG rheumatologists often collaborate and consult with other LMG specialists, and they are involved in clinical research studies in the areas of rheumatoid arthritis and rheumatic disease.

Conditions treated by LMG rheumatologists:
  • Gout
  • Lupus
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
    • Bursitis
    • Knee pain
    • Shoulder pain
  • Myositis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Psoriatic arthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Scleroderma
  • Spondylitis
  • Vasculitis
