About Your Care and Condition

Sometimes you walk without shuffling, and use a knife and fork relatively easily. Other days, the pain is as if your joints are all somewhat broken. That’s rheumatoid arthritis. We understand your pain and we can help. Our arthritis and rheumatology specialists are here to do all we can to give you lots of good days.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a condition that causes the lining of the joints—usually the hands and fingers—to become inflamed. Symptoms include pain, swelling, stiffness and loss of function. More than two million U.S. adults have rheumatoid arthritis. Medicines, lifestyle changes and surgery can slow or stop joint damage, ease pain and reduce swelling.
