In our Rheumatology Clinic, UAMS doctors who specialize in rheumatology and immunology are committed to caring for patients diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, the most crippling form of arthritis, as well as other diseases of the joints, tendons and connective tissues in the body.
At UAMS, we will chart a course to provide you with effective, personalized care. Since we are a teaching hospital, we are on top of the latest medications and treatments to help you live life to the fullest.
All of our rheumatology doctors are board certified in their specialty and in internal medicine. So they are among the top doctors in Arkansas for diagnosing and treating rheumatic diseases. We are experts in the treatment of all forms ofinflammatory arthritisas well as autoimmune diseases such as lupus. Our rheumatology services are located in the Orthopedic Clinic.
We have access to powerful imaging tools, including computed tomography (CT) scanning and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), along with a complete battery of tests for diagnosis and treatment. For nonsurgical treatments, we have an excellent team of therapists, occupational therapists and physiatrists at UAMS. When surgical options are required, our rheumatologists work in close collaboration with their UAMS colleagues in orthopedic surgery and hand therapy to ensure comprehensive care.
To continue our quest to offer the best care for our patients, UAMS is opening a new infusion center to treat our rheumatoid arthritis patients, improving patient convenience and access.
