Upstate Rheumatology

Patient Care

Rheumatologists are experts in treating arthritis and autoimmune diseases. We are specially trained to diagnose and treat inflammatory diseases of the joints and soft tissues affecting tendons, ligaments, muscles, and bones.

Conditions treated include:

  • Arthritis
  • Gout
  • Tendonitis
  • Joint and connective tissue disorders

Inflammation of the joints, muscles and other soft tissues are caused by wear and tear, infection, or disorders of the immune system, called autoimmune diseases.

These latter conditions include:

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Polymyositis
  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica
  • Many forms of Vasculitis

Recent advancements in understanding the causes of arthritis led to the introduction of new medications that revolutionized the treatment of many debilitating joint diseases.
