Experts with Advanced Training to Treat Complex Rheumatic Diseases and Arthritic Conditions
OhioHealth Physician Group rheumatologists are experts in treating a wide variety of bone, joint and muscle (musculoskeletal) disorders, as well as autoimmune diseases. Rheumatic diseases, also known as systemic autoimmune disorders, can be complex to diagnose and treat, so rest assured that you are in good hands with our board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians who will provide you with an individualized diagnosis and partner with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
In addition to the expertise OhioHealth Physician Group rheumatologists provide to treat rheumatic and arthritis, many also have experience in the advanced field of biologics, a therapy option to treat rheumatic diseases. Also known as biologic response modifiers, the development of these genetically engineered proteins inhibit the specific parts of the immune system that help to fuel inflammation, a key feature of rheumatoid arthritis, gout and other conditions. Biologics are given either by injection or by IV infusion. See your rheumatologists to learn more about whether you are a candidate for this therapy and what treatment options are recommended for you.
We are now offering telehealth appointments by phone or video to patients who do not need to be treated in person. Meet with your provider from the comfort of home using your smartphone, tablet or computer. Learn more.
