Hospital for Special Surgery, Rheumatology Division
Weill Cornell's rheumatologists offer the highest quality care for patients with a wide variety of rheumatic disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis and other joint diseases, systemic lupus erythematosus, vasculitis syndromes, gout, and others. Since rheumatological diseases are often associated with other conditions, our goals are to provide individualized treatment based on each person's medical profile and to make every attempt to help each patient find relief.
Our rheumatology staff focuses not only on our patients' "aches and pains", but on the whole person. We offer many activities that involve our patients, including support groups (LupusLine, Charla de Lupus and Myositis), clinical trials, lectures to enhance the patient-physician relationship, and the hospital's Voices program, which assists patients with various managed care issues.
