Rheumatology is a medical specialty. It essentially deals with disorders of the musculoskeletal system, which comprises mainly diseases of the joints, ligaments, muscles and soft tissues.
Its ramifications, however, cover all body systems. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis, which can affect all age groups i.e.; children, adults as well as elderly.
The spectrum of diseases covers developmental, infective, inflammatory, degenerative, autoimmune and metabolic disorders. Effective treatment is available for most of these diseases if diagnosed early and treated according to the standard guidelines. Disability and death due to these diseases can be prevented.

Being a team effort, the rheumatology service comprises of well qualified and experienced rheumatologists, competent and committed physiotherapists and specialists of allied departments of a high caliber. A variety of special clinics are run to improve patient care.
