Pediatric Rheumatology

Pediatric rheumatologists are physicians who have specialized training in the treatment of children and adolescents with autoinflammatory and autoimmune diseases that arise during childhood. These diseases, which can result in significant disability, often require ongoing management to preserve function and minimize medical issues. In collaboration with subspecialties in other relevant areas, we provide comprehensive care to these patients and their families.
