The NorthCrest Rheumatology Center, led by our rheumatologist Anne Elizabeth Eyler, MD, provides treatment for problems involving joints, soft tissues, autoimmune diseases, and metabolic bone disease. There are more than 100 types of these diseases or disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, psoriatic arthritis, sjogrens, lupus, and osteoporosis.
Many types of rheumatic dieseases are not easily identified in the early stages. A rheumatologist is specifically trained to discover the cause of swelling and pain. It’s important to determine a correct diagnosis early so that appropriate treatment can begin early. Some musculoskeletal disorders respond best to treatment in the early stages of the disease.
