Rheumatology Services

In the Division of Rheumatology, Inflammation, and Immunity at Brigham and Women's Hospital, we understand there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to rheumatologic care. That is why our rheumatologists work with each patient individually to provide innovative and comprehensive diagnosis, treatment and management for the full spectrum of rheumatic diseases.

Our Team-based Care Clinics

Our division is part of the Brigham's Orthopaedic & Arthritis Center, a world-renowned Center of Excellence that provides you with the most advanced care for all bone and joint conditions. For decades, the Brigham has been recognized nationally for our expertise in rheumatoid arthritis care and research.

Rheumatic diseases often involve symptoms that affect different systems in the body, so we take a team-based approach in our care clinics. Our rheumatologists work together with orthopaedic specialists, neurologists, dermatologists and other medical and surgical specialists from throughout the hospital, so you can count on comprehensive, highly specialized care for everything from mild to the most complex rheumatic disease.

Some of our clinics are housed at our primary site in the Hale Building for Transformative Medicine, while others are hosted elsewhere at the Brigham. These clinics include the:

  • Cardiovascular Rheumatology Clinic, which treats the cardiovascular complications of rheumatic diseases
  • Center for Adults with Pediatric Rheumatic Illness (CAPRI), which manages care for patients with childhood rheumatic disease as they transition into adulthood
