Through a balance of clinical care, education, and research, our rheumatology specialists provide advanced diagnostic and treatment capabilities for a wide range of conditions. Geisinger has the expertise to diagnose complicated conditions, helping you begin the right treatment plan as quickly as possible. These include:

Diseases of the joints

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Psoriatic arthritis
    A form of arthritis that affects some people who have psoriasis - a condition that features red patches of skin topped with silvery scales. Most people develop psoriasis first and are later diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, but the joint problems can sometimes begin before skin lesions appear.

    A connective-tissue disease that is characterized by inflammation of the muscles and the skin.

Immune system diseases

  • Lupus
