Arthritis (Rheumatology)

The rheumatology team at University of Miami Health System offers leading-edge care for arthritis (joint pain) and diseases that affect joints, muscles, bones, and connective tissue (rheumatic diseases). Our advanced expertise in research, education, and treatment of people with arthritis and related conditions has earned us national recognition for more than 50 years. 

Our rheumatologists have the experience to diagnose and treat the full range of rheumatic diseases — including autoimmune diseases, which occur when the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. As leading arthritis researchers and care providers, our specialists are often called upon to share their expertise and collaborate with doctors in South Florida and nationwide.

You don’t have to live with joint pain or other symptoms that keep you from feeling your best. Whether you want relief from arthritis pain or you’re seeking the newest therapies for lupus, scleroderma, or another complex condition, our rheumatologists offer an advanced level of care you can only find at an academic health center.

Why Choose UHealth?

The latest treatments for arthritis and other rheumatic diseases. The same doctors who provide care are also federally funded researchers on the leading edge of autoimmune and rheumatic disease care. Through our clinical trials, we offer some of today’s most promising therapies for lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, myositis, scleroderma, and more — including treatments you can’t find anywhere else nearby.

Comprehensive care from a team of specialists. In addition to affecting joints, muscles, and bones, rheumatic and autoimmune diseases can involve your skin, kidneys, and other organs. That’s why our rheumatologists work collaboratively with doctors in a full range of medical specialties to give you comprehensive care — from orthopedists and dermatologists to kidney specialists (nephrologists), lung experts (pulmonologists), and more.

Specialized treatment to improve your quality of life. Our rheumatologists work closely with physiatrists (physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors), physical therapists, pain management specialists, and other health care professionals to help manage symptoms such as pain, stiffness, muscle weakness, and fatigue. We focus on helping you feel your best.

Expert diagnosis and personalized attention. Treatment for arthritis and related diseases that cause pain and swelling need complex care. We consider your lifestyle and changing needs to develop a treatment plan that’s right for you. And, with locations throughout South Florida, you can find expert care close to home.

A full spectrum of non-invasive and minimally invasive pain-management therapies. You don’t have to live with pain. We offer the latest approaches to relieve pain — from acupuncture and biofeedback to neurostimulation, radiofrequency ablation, ultrasound-guided injections, and more.
