Rheumatology

Man having joint pain.

Our rheumatologist treats inflammatory or “rheumatic” diseases, such as arthritis, certain autoimmune diseases, musculoskeletal pain, and osteoporosis, that affect the joints, muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons. Some of these rheumatic diseases are very serious. If untreated, they can lead to joint deformities and disability affecting your daily living.

At Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk, Nebraska, our rheumatology team is specially trained in diagnosing these diseases, providing early intervention and helping you regain a healthier and more active life.
