BWH offers world-class rheumatoid arthritis treatment.
The BWH Center for Arthritis and Joint Diseases provides world-class care and treatment for more than 100 causes of arthritis, including lupus, gout and pseudogout, spine disorders, and the immune system, as happens in rheumatoid arthritis.
The Center has a long history of innovation and focus on arthritis – it originated as the Robert Breck Brigham Hospital, the first teaching hospital in the U.S. focused solely on rheumatoid arthritis and other related conditions. The Center's innovative research and therapeutic developments have helped to advance the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other joint diseases, and earned BWH the distinction of being named one of the top providers of rheumatology services, including rheumatoid arthritis therapy, in the U.S.
The Center is staffed by one of the largest and most diversified teams of rheumatologists and allergists in the country, who regularly collaborate with other BWH specialists in physiatry, pain management, bone and joint radiology and other services to deliver comprehensive care to more than 30,000 arthritis patients annually.
