Rheumatology

At AZHD we take an integrated approach in treating Rheumatological disorders

What is Rheumatology?

Rheumatology is a division of internal medicine and pediatrics that deals with the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune disorders and heritable connective tissue disorders. A rheumatologist specializes in the diagnosis, treatment of the rheumatic diseases, through a large variety of traditional, alternative and new age therapies.

At Al Zahra Hospital Dubai we take an integrated approach in treating Rheumatological disorders. We often treat patients through a mix of contemporary medication, lifestyle changes, nutrition advice, and alternative therapies. As most of rheumatological disorders are long term or chronic and can cause significant pain, we support our patients on their journey to recovery through expert medical care, empathy and kindness.

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
