Rheumatic diseases consist of more than 100 conditions, including all forms of arthritis (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis), certain autoimmune diseases (e.g., systemic lupus), musculoskeletal pain disorders and osteoporosis. Rheumatic diseases can affect virtually any part of the body. They are usually associated with inflammation (swelling and redness), almost always accompanied by pain and have symptoms that can have a profound effect on the ability to perform daily activities.
Rheumatology Services at Hughes Medical Centre provides diagnosis, treatment and monitoring for patients suffering with these chronic conditions, and they work with each patient to develop an individualized treatment program.
We are located in Lower South Hill area, immediately before the Cuisinart Hotel.
