Autoimmune Disease
While there are many different types of autoimmune diseases with their own sets of symptoms, each one of these conditions share the common trait of having a dysfunctional immune system that attacks healthy cells in the body. Some autoimmune diseases may only target one organ of the body, while others may affect several different systems. Some of the most common autoimmune diseases include lupus, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the two most common forms of this disease. While these two types of arthritis share similar symptoms, such as pain and swelling around the joints, they have different causes. It is important to identify the type of arthritis in order to properly understand and treat this condition. With simple testing, our staff is able to determine the type of arthritis a patient is suffering from and come up with a treatment plan that fits their specific needs.
Heart Disease
Heart disease is an umbrella term that is used to describe a variety of conditions that affect the function and health of the heart. Some of the most common conditions that qualify as heart disease include coronary artery disease; congenital heart defects, meaning issues affecting the heart since birth; and heart arrhythmias. Patients with heart disease will require lifelong monitoring and management.
Inflammation Treatment
Inflammation is the body’s natural response, to heal itself, whenever an illness or injury is present. However, when inflammation of the body becomes chronic, it can lead to long-term damage and discomfort. Additionally, chronic inflammation has been linked to the development of several other diseases and conditions. In many cases, doctors will recommend lifestyle changes, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and other medications.
Joint Surgery
In cases where damage to the joints becomes too severe for medication to properly manage, joint surgery may be your best option to bring relief and restore function. There are many different types of joint surgeries including total joint replacement. If you are suffering from painful or damaged joints, our physicians can help find a treatment plan that works for your specific condition.
Medication and Surgery
Many chronic diseases can be managed with lifestyle changes and medications. In more severe cases, where medication, diet, and exercise are not able to bring solutions to those who are affected by a chronic disease, surgery may be an option.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), is a scan of the body that uses large magnet and radio waves to get a comprehensive look at organs and other structures of the body. These tests are used to help diagnose many different types of conditions, including inflammation and some autoimmune diseases.
In many cases, diagnosing a chronic illness or autoimmune disease will require multiple different tests to be run and evaluated by a physician. One of the most common and effective ways a doctor can find helpful information about what is happening in their patient’s bodies is by running blood work tests.
Heart Monitoring
If your doctor has reason to believe your heart is functioning irregularly, they may require tests to monitor the patterns of your heart. Some of these tests can be done quickly during an office visit, and others will require more time in order to properly track the performance of your heart.
