Rheumatology Specialty

Rheumatology is a field of medicine that studies and treats inflammatory diseases that primarily affect the body’s musculoskeletal system — joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments as well as certain autoimmune diseases. Certain Rheumatologic disorders may also affect the blood vessels, skin, nerves and most internal organs.

Rheumatic disorders tend to require chronic care and can develop into permanent disability if not properly managed.

Rheumatology in Pakistan is still a nascent specialty and was only recognized in 2010.Shalamar Hospital distinguishes itself from others by having a devoted Rheumatology Clinic with two qualified specialists.
