Rheumatologist in Dubai

An internist with additional training in the diagnosis (detection) and management of musculoskeletal disease and systemic autoimmune problems, collectively known as rheumatic diseases, is referred to as a rheumatologist. These conditions can harm bones, muscles, and joints, resulting in deformity, discomfort, swelling, and stiffness.

Symptoms to visit a Rheumatologist

The individual could experience discomfort, swelling, stiffness, and even possibly lead to joint abnormalities. The eyes, skin, nerves, kidneys, lungs, heart, and other internal organs are just a few of the bodily parts that these illnesses can impact. All systemic autoimmune illnesses have the potential to result in arthritis or joint inflammation.
Our expert team provides comprehensive care for all these diseases to improve the lives of patients with autoimmune and inflammatory rheumatic diseases.
