Multi-disciplinary Clinical Practice
The Section on Rheumatology promotes and supports education, research, and clinical care of rheumatic diseases.
Because inflammatory and immune disorders can affect many systems in the body, Section clinicians also partner with specialists throughout the Medical Center to provide each patient with appropriate, comprehensive care. The Section’s clinical practice utilizes the expertise of faculty rheumatologists, registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and social workers to meet the needs of patients who come to the Section’s clinics and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center from throughout North Carolina. Clinical services address the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, SLE, gout, scleroderma, and inflammatory muscle disorders.
