The Rheumatology Department is the branch where rheumatoid diseases are diagnosed and treated. Joint problems, stiffness in the soft tissues surrounding the muscle and joints, pain, movement restrictions, swelling and shape deformities occur in rheumatological diseases.
As they are common, chronic and also affect the internal organs, rheumatological diseases are serious and are thought to be caused by immune system diseases, although their real cause is not known. However, they are thought to trigger genetic and environmental diseases.
If they are not treated, they can harm the patient’s quality of life and cause permanent disabilities. If needed during treatment, the dermatology, orthopaedics, chest diseases, neurology, gastroenterology, nephrology, physiotherapy and other departments are consulted for support.
The diagnosis and treatment of infected spinal rheumatism, rheumatoid arthritis, network tissue diseases (systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjögren syndrome, scleroderma etc.), inflammatory myositis, diseases which cause vein infections, familial Mediterranean fever, Bechet’s disease and gout, degenerative joint diseases (osteoarthritis), osteoporosis and soft tissue rheumatism are conducted at the rheumatology department.
