Division of Rheumotology
Department of Medicine
Boston, MA 2215
The Rheumatology Division maintains an active outpatient clinical practice and an inpatient consultation service for patients with rheumatic diseases. The outpatient practice is located in Suite 4B at 110 Francis Street on the West campus. All of the full-time members of the Division provide care based on a model in which each physician is responsible for personalized continuity care for their own patients. The individualized service provided to patients and referring physicians by the administrative and physician staff is in large part responsible for the growth and expansion of outpatient clinical practice. The division is a major referral center for patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, refractory rheumatoid arthritis, hereditary periodic febrile syndromes (such as Familial Mediterranean Fever), scleroderma, polychondritis and vasculitis. In addition to expertise in the common rheumatic disorders such as gout, osteoarthritis and the spondyloarthropathies, several division members have special interest and training in osteoporosis. An exciting new development in the Rheumatology Division is the establishment of the Lupus Center of Excellence.
