Aches and pains happen to the best of us, and mostly resolve on their own. But when you have persistent pain in your joints, muscles and bones that won’t go away, you and your primary care provider might decide that it’s time to see a rheumatologist. The specialists at Kaiser Permanente Colorado’s Rheumatology Department offer compassionate care to diagnose and treat a number of rheumatoid diseases.
What we do
There are more than 100 rheumatoid diseases, and our experts have the special skills and training to treat them. Some of the more common conditions we treat include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Inflammatory polyarthritis
- CREST syndrome
- Giant cell arteritis
- Sjögren’s syndrome
- And more
At Kaiser Permanente’s Rheumatology Department, you can expect personalized care by our top-notch doctors and care teams.
Who we are
Our care team is made up of dedicated doctors who specialize in rheumatology, nurses, and a nursing manager. We work closely together to drive better outcomes for you.
Your rheumatologist partners with other specialists, including your primary care provider, to coordinate your care for complex conditions that affect many parts of your body. By communicating with the rest of your health care team, we can provide the best care for your needs. And because we’re all connected to each other — and to you — through your electronic medical record, we are always on the same page when it comes to your care.
The way we practice medicine at Kaiser Permanente gives us the freedom to focus on care, rather than running a business. We are free to practice medicine the way it is supposed to be practiced — with a focus on providing expert, compassionate care to you.
Every member of your care team is here to support you through your journey. When you have excellent doctors, truly connected care teams, advanced technology, and the right partners, you can expect great results.
