Arthritis Care & Rheumatology

Specialized treatment for musculoskeletal and autoimmune conditions

Get Expert Arthritis Care and Treatment of Rheumatic Disease

Most of us have experienced joint or muscle pain. When you’re lucky, it’s brief and goes away on its own. But sometimes musculoskeletal discomfort persists. It may come with swelling and stiffness. And it may make it hard to get around or do daily activities. Some people even develop joint damage. When you have symptoms like these, the rheumatology team at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Milton can help.

Our rheumatologists specialize in the many types of arthritis and other diseases that affect joints, muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons. We offer diagnosis, nonsurgical treatment and disease management.

We’re also experts in systemic autoimmune diseases. These are conditions that cause your immune system to attack your own body. This causes inflammation and can lead to arthritis. It may also damage your eyes, skin, nerves or internal organs.

With early treatment, we may help you find relief and avoid the long-term damage rheumatic disease can cause.
