Understanding the cause for your joint stiffness, swelling in your arms and legs or chronic pain is important for your overall health. We’re here to help. At Ascension Wisconsin, our rheumatologist provides specialty care for rheumatic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory diseases in children and adults. We listen to understand you and your health concerns. Then, we work with you to create a care plan that’s right for you.

Specialty care for arthritis, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases

Our care team provides lab tests and ultrasound imaging to analyze joint fluid imbalances. Treatments help you manage your pain and symptoms to improve your flexibility and mobility. Treatment options may include: 

  • Infusion therapy
