The rheumatology department primarily focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of rheumatic diseases. These are conditions that affect the joints, muscles, bones, and sometimes other organs of the body. Rheumatic diseases encompass a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to:

Rheumatoid arthritis: An autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of the joints, leading to pain, swelling, stiffness, and potential joint damage.

Osteoarthritis: A degenerative joint disease characterized by the breakdown of cartilage in the joints, resulting in pain, stiffness, and decreased mobility.

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE): An autoimmune disease that can affect various parts of the body, including joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, and brain, causing inflammation and a range of symptoms.

Spondyloarthropathies: A group of inflammatory diseases that primarily affect the spine and sacroiliac joints, including ankylosing spondylitis and psoriatic arthritis.

Gout: A type of arthritis caused by the buildup of uric acid crystals in the joints, leading to sudden and severe pain, swelling, and redness.

Systemic sclerosis (scleroderma): A rare autoimmune disease characterized by thickening and hardening of the skin, as well as damage to internal organs such as the lungs, heart, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract.

Sjogren’s syndrome: An autoimmune disease that primarily affects the glands that produce saliva and tears, leading to dry mouth and eyes, as well as other systemic symptoms.

Vasculitis: Inflammation of blood vessels, which can affect various organs and tissues depending on the type and severity of the condition.

The rheumatology department utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to patient care, involving rheumatologists, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and other healthcare professionals. Treatment strategies often involve a combination of medications, physical therapy, lifestyle modifications, and patient education to manage symptoms, prevent complications, and improve quality of life for individuals with rheumatic diseases. Additionally, ongoing research in the field aims to better understand the underlying mechanisms of these conditions and develop more effective treatments.
