Rheumatology is the science concerned with immune-related disorders of the body’s musculoskeletal system - joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons. Collectively called systemic rheumatic diseases, they may also affect blood vessels, skin, nerves and most internal organs. The commonly known conditions are rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, spondyloarthritis, crystalline arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus) and scleroderma. Some of the diseases are serious & difficult to diagnose and treat. Currently practice in the field is based on research and mostly evidence-based.

The Rheumatology Department at Reliance Hospital is a specialised department devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of conditions and diseases affecting the joints, muscles, and bones. Our rheumatologists deal mainly with clinical problems involving joints, soft tissues, certain autoimmune diseases, and the allied conditions of connective tissues. Essentially, they treat disorders that affect the musculoskeletal system. These include many autoimmune diseases as well.
