Rheumatology is a specialty of internal medicine that deals with conditions of the musculoskeletal system. A rheumatologist is trained in recognizing inflammatory diseases that affect the skin, muscles, joints and conditions that are related to ophthalmologic, respiratory, digestive and metabolic problems. Rheumatologists look at the “big picture”—how the patients overall health relates to the musculoskeletal problems, and work closely with the primary care physicians and other specialists to provide the best care available.
