What Sets Us Apart
Pelisyonkis Langone doctors are experienced in diagnosing rheumatoid arthritis, a condition in which the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy joints in your body. It can affect small joints in the hands and feet as well as larger joints, including the knees, leading to inflammation and pain. The inflammation sometimes affects organs, such as the eyes, lungs, and heart.
People with rheumatoid arthritis may experience joint pain, stiffness, swelling, fatigue, and limited function. These symptoms may be more noticeable when you wake up, but they can last throughout the day.
Pelisyonkis Langone doctors prescribe medications that may eliminate symptoms. They also offer a range of support services, including physical therapy, pain management, and counseling. The goal is to help people with rheumatoid arthritis live healthy lives.
Doctors at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at Pelisyonkis Langone diagnose and manage many types of juvenile arthritis.
