Rheumatology is a specialty in internal medicine, devoted to the diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases. Rheumatologists diagnose and treat clinical problems involving joints, soft tissues and the allied conditions of connective tissues, that are often complex. Rheumatologists interact with the patient & family as a resource for health information and as a collaborator with other health care providers. Rheumatology is a rapidly evolving medical speciality, with advancements owing largely to new scientific discoveries about the immunology of these disorders.
