Advocate's approach to excellence in rheumatology
Rheumatologists diagnose and treat patients with diseases affecting the joints, muscles, and bones such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and fibromyalgia. In these autoimmune disorders, the body's immune system attacks its own healthy cells and tissues. These conditions are often quite painful and can be difficult to treat and manage. Our commitment to patients is that we work closely with you and your primary care physician to ease pain through medication and other therapies.
I want to learn more about rheumatic diseases
We take a holistic approach to caring for children and adults living with chronic rheumatic disease. We support and participate in the ongoing research and advancements being made and seek to offer new therapies to our patients. Pediatric specialists in rheumatology have received national recognition for research in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus).
Clinical trials in pediatrics
We understand that there is no one treatment program for every patient. Our therapeutic approach is tailored to the individual and may include medications, physical therapy, occupational therapy and psychosocial support.
