Department of Rheumatology

Welcome to the Department of Rheumatology at Kothari Medical Centre where compassionate care is combined with medication management, physiotherapies, occupational therapy, lifestyle changes, and patient education. A wide variety of rheumatic disorders, including arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, and other connective tissue disorders are diagnosed and treated by our experts. To increase mobility, avoid impairment, and help patients manage their diseases, customized programmers are created.


Rheumatism Treatment


Rheumatologists identify the underlying cause of symptoms by combining patient history, physical examination, laboratory tests, and imaging studies. Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, lupus, fibromyalgia, and spondyloarthropathies are a few of the disorders they frequently identify.


Medication management, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, lifestyle changes, and patient education are some possible treatment approaches. Rheumatologists offer their patients evidence-based therapy and stay current on the most recent developments in treatment alternatives.

Medication Management

Experts prescribe disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs), nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids, biologic agents, joint injections, infusion therapy, and other types of medication to help manage symptoms, slow disease progression, and improve overall quality of life.

Biologic Therapies

The Rheumatology department based on the need of the patient may provide biologic medicines, which are cutting-edge drugs made from living things. These are frequently used to treat autoimmune conditions such psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Physical therapy and Rehabilitation

To assist patients in managing pain, enhancing mobility, and maintaining functionality, the rheumatology department may work in conjunction with physical therapists and occupational therapists.

Procedures & Injections

Sometimes the rheumatology department uses joint injections (such as corticosteroid injections) to treat localised pain and inflammation. The rheumatologists may also carry out therapeutic and diagnostic procedures including synovial fluid examinations or joint aspirations.

Management of Osteoporosis and Bone Health

We offer advice on preserving bone health and avoiding osteoporosis. They can also identify and treat problems like osteoporosis.

Pain Management

A typical feature of many rheumatic disorders is chronic pain. Rheumatologists collaborate with patients to manage pain using a variety of pharmaceuticals, physical therapy, and dietary changes.

If you feel recurrent joint pain, swelling, stiffness, or restricted mobility, you can consider visiting a rheumatologist. Additionally, it is advised to see a rheumatologist for proper assessment and care if you have an autoimmune disease or a family history of rheumatic diseases.

These could include joint injections, physical therapy, dietary changes, patient education, and, in certain situations, surgery. Relieving symptoms, enhancing function, and stopping disease progression are the objectives.

Rheumatologic disorders can affect persons of all ages, from infants to the elderly. However specific rheumatic conditions are more common in particular age groups. One rheumatic disease that particularly affects youngsters is juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

In order to diagnose your condition, the rheumatologist will take a thorough medical history, perform a physical exam, and maybe request additional testing including blood tests, imaging (X-rays, MRIs), or joint aspiration. The doctor will then go through your issue, suggest a course of therapy, and respond to any queries you may have.

The patient’s medical history, physical examination, laboratory tests, and imaging studies are used to identify rheumatic diseases. Rheumatologists use this information to precisely diagnose the particular illness and create a suitable treatment strategy.

Depending on the problem, there are many treatment methods. Medications (such as biologics, disease-modifying antirheumatic medicines, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), physical therapy, dietary changes, and, in some circumstances, surgical procedures may be among them. The treatment programme is customised for each patient’s need.

In order to manage your illness, your rheumatologist will offer advice that may include taking prescription medications, adhering to an exercise routine, eating a balanced diet, and changing your lifestyle. To track your development and make any required modifications to your treatment plan, regular follow-up consultations with your rheumatologist are crucial.
