The Department of Rheumatology provides a full range of services - including joint injections, musculoskeletal ultrasound, and infusion therapies – for arthritis and systemic rheumatic autoimmune diseases, including scleroderma, lupus, inflammatory arthritis, spondyloarthritis, osteoarthritis, and gout. For all conditions, our rheumatologists work closely with providers in other departments to ensure you receive the best care possible, for all aspects of your health.

Our department includes specific programs for several conditions, including the largest scleroderma program in New England and a lupus program that offers multidisciplinary care in conjunction with a variety of specialists. 

A BMC clinical pharmacist works closely with our doctors and patients to ensure that you have all the information you need about your medications and that medication interactions are minimized. We can also help you navigate the insurance process, so you can get joint-saving treatment safely and without delay. Our BMC Infusion Suite provides patients with the utmost privacy, comfort, and convenience.

Our rheumatologists are actively engaged in research and have led development of national treatment guidelines in osteoarthritis, gout, and spondyloarthritis. We provide many opportunities for patients to participate in clinical trials.
