A rheumatologist is an internist who is qualified by additional
training and experience in the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis
and other diseases of the joints, muscles and bones. Many
rheumatologists conduct research to determine the cause and better
treatments for these disabling and sometimes fatal diseases.
Rheumatologists treat arthritis, certain autoimmune diseases,
musculoskeletal pain disorders and osteoporosis. There are more
than 100 types of these diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis,
osteoarthritis, gout, lupus, back pain, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia
and tendonitis. Some of these are very serious diseases that can be
difficult to diagnose and treat.
