Our rheumatologists in Indiana specialize in the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of arthritis and musculoskeletal diseases. Specifically, we focus on treating many forms of arthritis, connective tissue diseases, autoimmune and immunologic disorders, metabolic bone diseases as well as general or localized musculoskeletal pain problems. Our highly specialized group is comprised of double board-certified physicians and nurse practitioners. With these high qualifications, our practice offers the best rheumatological care in Indiana.
Many types of rheumatic disease are not easily identified in the early stages. Our rheumatology physicians in Indiana are specially trained to work as detectives to help patients discover the cause of their illness or discomfort as well as providing specific therapy for rheumatologic disorders. Rheumatologists have experience in prescribing and monitoring the sophisticated therapies often required to treat rheumatologic disorders.
We work closely with primary care physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists and orthopedic surgeons to provide comprehensive rheumatologic care. It is important to us that our patients understand their illness and treatment, thus disease management education is an essential part of our practice.
We pride ourselves on offering two imaging centers that includes X-ray, MRI, CT and bone mineral density testing as well as an on-site laboratory to make it easy for our patients to obtain excellent comprehensive care. For patients that require intravenous medications, Franciscan Physician Network has two Ambulatory Infusion Centers to make getting intravenous medication convenient.
