Pediatric Arthritis & Rheumatologic Diseases Services
The pediatric rheumatologists at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital provide the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal complaints including autoimmune, inflammatory and bone diseases such as:
- Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
- Systemic lupus erythematosus
- Mixed Connective Tissue Disease
- Juvenile dermatomyositis
- Collaboration in monitoring immunosuppressive therapy for auto immune eye and ear disease
The rheumatologists serve as resource to pediatricians who may wish assistance in evaluating children with abnormal inflammatory laboratories and/or detectable autoantibodies. Two of our staff are board-certified in adult rheumatology. This unique combination of expertise is especially helpful in providing uninterrupted care to adolescents with autoimmune diseases as they mature into adulthood.
