The arsenal you need for rheumatic disease

Rheumatic diseases — which cause pain, stiffness and swelling in internal structures and tissues — can overwhelm a child’s body. Many rheumatic diseases are chronic and considered autoimmune in nature, because they occur when the immune system malfunctions and attacks healthy tissues. At Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota we help you fight back.

Our experienced rheumatology team is armed with the advanced tools to diagnose these complex conditions, alleviate pain and restore function in kids and teens. It’s no wonder that pediatricians and others kids’ specialists across the region send kids to us for comprehensive rheumatology evaluations and treatment.
