Treatment/Procedures

SJMO treats most rheumatic diseases (such as arthritis) with analgesics, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, DMARDS ("steroid-sparing" agents) and monoclonal antibodies such as infliximab and etanercept.

Physiotherapy is also essential in the treatment of many rheumatological disorders, and occupational therapy can help many patients find alternative motions for common movements which would otherwise be restricted by their ailments.

To contact a SJMO rheumatology specialist, please call our referral line at 800-372-6094.
