The main threat of rheumatic diseases is that a significant number of patients develop a temporary or permanent disability, especially at a young age.
Therefore, timely diagnosis and treatment of diseases is very important.

Who is a rheumatologist?

A rheumatologist is a doctor who diagnoses, treats and prevents diseases of the joints and connective tissue. Examination by a rheumatologist is necessary when there is pain or swelling in the joints, a change in their configuration and a feeling of stiffness during movement.

At the initial consultation, the rheumatologist listens to the patient's complaints, examines him/her and examines the medical history (if any). If necessary, the doctor may prescribe additional tests. Special preparation for the appointment of a rheumatologist is not required. But it is advisable not to eat for three hours before the consultation. This will enable the doctor to immediately refer the patient for a blood test. After the diagnosis, the rheumatologist develops an individual treatment regimen.

What diseases does a rheumatologist treat?

A rheumatologist treats diseases that occur with systemic or local damage to the connective tissue. These diseases are associated with impaired immune homeostasis (self-regulation), are often chronic in nature, and can be inflammatory and non-inflammatory.

  • arthrosis;
  • ankylosing spondylitis;
  • Behcet's disease;
