Rheumatology is a sub-specialty in internal medicine and pediatrics, devoted to diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases involving joints, soft tissues, autoimmune diseases and heritable connective tissue disorders.
Many of these diseases are now known to be disorders of the immune system. Rheumatology is increasingly the study of immunology.
One of the major advances in modern rheumatology is the development of new drugs called biologics, or disease modifying agents, which can control severe disease more effectively
Rheumatology treatment at Ernakulam Medical Centre specializes in evaluating and treating rheumatism in all its forms as well as other conditions like gout , lupus, back pain, and tendonitis.
We integrate new medical approaches with important non–drug therapies such as weight loss and exercise so that you can get back to enjoying life better.
We also carry out various intra-articular injections and the usage of biologic drugs for rheumatologic diseases.
