Approximately 50 million American adults have been diagnosed with some form of arthritis.

That number is expected to reach 67 million by the year 2030. If left untreated,

arthritis can be a debilitating disease.


We treat a full range of chronic rheumatic diseases, musculoskeletal conditions, and autoimmune diseases. A few conditions we commonly treat include:

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease and form of arthritis that causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function in your joints. It is most common in older people, often starting in middle age.

Psoriatic arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease and type of arthritis that occurs in some patients with psoriasis. Symptoms include joint pain, stiffness, and swelling, which may flare and subside.

Gout is a type of arthritis that can cause sudden, acute attacks of pain, swelling, redness, hotness, and tenderness in one or more joints. Often occurring in the big toe, gout happens when extra uric acid in the body forms crystals in the joints.

Lupus is an inflammatory disease caused when the immune system attacks its own tissues (autoimmune disease). Symptoms vary but can include joint pain, fever, skin rashes, and organ damage.

Osteoporosis is a common condition that weakens and thins the bones. The bones can become so brittle that even a fall, bending over, or coughing can cause a fracture. Many people have no symptoms until they experience a bone fracture.

A condition that is recognized by generalized muscle pain and fatigue. It is referred to as a "syndrome" because it is a set of signs and symptoms that occur together; most commonly in the muscles and tendons of the neck, spine, shoulders, and hips.

OA is the most common type of arthritis that affects adults. This chronic condition is known by the breakdown of the cartilage in the joints. The cartilage is the area of the joint that cushions the end of the bones and allows movement of the joint. This can cause joint stiffness and pain and loss of joint movement. It has been stated that there are 27 million people in the United States alone that suffer from OA.
