Rheumatology

Rheumatology is a medical specialization focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the joints, bones and spine, as well as inflammatory diseases of the muscles, connective tissue and blood vessels.

Rheumatic diseases are not always manifested by a set of signs characteristic of them, often disguising themselves as other pathologies. To this end, a comprehensive outpatient service for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the joints and the musculoskeletal system as a whole was created at K + 31 Clinic.

For whom is this relevant?

Among the variety of rheumatic diseases (there are more than 100 !!!), the following diseases are most common in our country and in the world :

  • arthritis;
  • osteoporosis;
  • rheumatoid arthritis;
  • gout and other joint diseases;
  • Ankylosing spondylitis;
  • psoriatic arthritis;
  • fibromyalgia;
  • Paget's disease.

Along with the fight against the aforementioned ailments, rheumatologists are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of rare systemic diseases:

  • vasculopathies and systemic vasculitis (Takayasu arteritis, giant cell arteritis, Wegener's granulomatosis, microscopic polyangiitis, Charge Strauss syndrome);
  • diffuse diseases of the connective tissue (systemic lupus erythematosus, polymyositis, Sjogren's disease, scleroderma).

Rheumatic diseases can begin at any age, but mainly occur in people older than 45 years. At this age, osteoarthrosis and osteoporosis can develop. However, against the background of joint injuries and intense physical exertion, osteoarthrosis can also be observed in young people. More often it manifests itself among athletes and extreme enthusiasts.

Rheumatic diseases have "preferences" and gender. For example, gout and ankylosing spondylitis are more common in men; rheumatoid arthritis, systemic (autoimmune) diseases and vascular diseases are referred to “female” diseases.

Diagnosis and treatment in K + 31

The specialists of the K + 31 clinic have experience in the treatment of precisely “complex” cases of rheumatic diseases, especially systemic pathologies. We can offer patients the selection of an individual immunosuppressive therapy regimen using both modern biological products and drugs that have been proven effective for many years. We help our patients optimize existing treatment, reduce undesirable drug reactions, and help reduce the dosage of drugs without exacerbating the disease.
