At NewYork-Presbyterian Allen Hospital, we offer specialized care for people with rheumatologic diseases (those affecting the joints, such as arthritis). Our physicians are part of New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center's Division of Rheumatology. In addition, each of our physicians is a member of the highly regarded ColumbiaDoctors faculty practice. You can experience the level of exceptional care expected from NewYork-Presbyterian in a personal and accessible environment.
Our rheumatologists and other healthcare professionals provide the highest level of care for patients with all types of autoimmune inflammatory conditions (illnesses in which the body attacks itself, producing antibodies against its own tissues and leading to intense inflammation). They provide expertise and inpatient consultation for rheumatologic disorders such as inflammatory arthritis (rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis), osteoarthritis, gout, systemic lupus erythematosus, vasculitis, scleroderma, Sjogren's syndrome, and myositis (including polymyositis and dermatomyositis).
The Rheumatology Faculty Practice
The Rheumatology Faculty Practice at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia is an integrated patient care and research practice. Because autoimmune conditions affect numerous organ systems in the body, partnerships with other medical specialists are paramount for providing effective treatment and conducting research to develop the therapies of the future. Under one umbrella, the Rheumatology Center brings together rheumatologists, scientists, orthopedists, cardiologists, nephrologists, and obstetrician/gynecologists—all working in concert to provide the best care for patients. The goal of care is to improve your quality of life and prevent the progression of your disease.
A Commitment to Excellence
Our rheumatologists are best-in-class in the areas of patient care, medical education, and basic and clinical research focused on the causes of and cures for arthritis. As physicians associated with one of the foremost academic medical centers in the world, our doctors provide the best medical care to enhance each patient's experience.
Outpatient consultations for rheumatologic diseases are available at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia and at ColumbiaDoctors Riverdale.
