About Children's Rheumatology

If your child has complaints of pain in the musculoskeletal system (joints, muscles, bones, or tendons), other symptoms of arthritis, or an autoimmune disorder, your doctor may recommend a Pediatric Rheumatologist.

Children are not just small adults. Their bodies are growing and have unique medical needs. Our pediatric rheumatologists are experienced in interpreting your child's:

  • Unexplained musculoskeletal pain

  • Unexplained physical findings, such as rash, fever, anemia,weakness,weight loss, fatigue, or loss of appetite

We diagnose and treat pediatric inflammatory diseases, including:

  • Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis

  • Lupus (Our services include a lupus clinic.)

  • Scleroderma

  • Dermatomyositis

  • Periodic fever

  • Spondyloarthritis

  • Chronic vasculitis
