Rheumatology

Experienced Specialists Caring for Musculoskeletal and Immune System Disorders

Temple Rheumatology offers specialty care for musculoskeletal diseases and autoimmune conditions that can lead to chronic pain and damage in your joints, bones, muscles and organs.

Often referred to as rheumatic diseases, they can be challenging to diagnose in the early stages — signs and symptoms can be mistaken for other conditions.

Temple rheumatologists and advanced care providers have years of experience in identifying and treating all types of rheumatic conditions linked to inflammation and autoimmune disorders. Our goal is to help relieve your symptoms and restore maximum mobility and function for a lifetime.

Rheumatology Conditions We Treat

We offer diagnosis of and treatment for more than 100 rheumatic diseases, including:

Third Dose of COVID Vaccine for Patients with Chronic Conditions

People with chronic rheumatologic conditions requiring immunocompromising treatment (such as steroids and monoclonal antibodies) may be eligible to receive a third dose of the COVID vaccine at least 28 days following the two-dose regimen of the same mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna).

Comprehensive, Whole-Person Care

The most appropriate treatment plan for rheumatology conditions is whole-person care. Our rheumatologists collaborate with specialists from many disciplines to provide the best care for our patients.

Therapies to manage rheumatic conditions include:

  • Joint injections
  • Immunosuppressants, such as corticosteroids
  • Oral analgesics
  • Targeted therapies, such as biologics and disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs)

Because some therapies are given as an IV infusion, we have an on-site Infusion Center. Patients benefit from safe medication administration in a comfortable setting.
