Scope of services
- Rheumatic diseases are difficult to identify in their early stages. Rheumatologists are specially trained to do the detective work necessary to diagnose these conditions early to begin appropriate treatment because many of these disorders respond best to treatment in the early stages of disease.
- We provide consultation or second opinion, detailed examination, diagnosis and treatment of all autoimmune rheumatological/clinical immunological diseases.
- With the availability of wide array of biologic agents and biosimilar, treatment of complex rheumatological diseases has drastically improved and we are encouraged to treat patients with the target of achieving complete remission instead of low disease activity.
Interpretation of autoimmune tests
- Diagnosis of rheumatological disorders is mainly clinical. Sophisticated immunological tests like RF (RA factor), Anti CCP, ANA, ANCA, HLA B27, HLA B51, Anti ds DNA, Anti SSA, SSB (Ro, La), ENA, APLA, Uric acid etc. could support the diagnosis only when the pre-test probability is high based on clinical profile. Various advancements had been made in laboratory techniques in recent time.
Intraarticular joint injections
- We routinely perform intraarticular joint injections either with depot corticosteroids or viscosupplement (Hyaluronic acid) as per requirement.
