Rheumatology is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the joints, muscles, bones, and other connective tissues. Some of the conditions under rheumatology include:


Symptoms of rheumatologic disorders can vary depending on the specific condition, but some common symptoms include:

Joint pain and stiffness: This is a common symptom of conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus. The pain and stiffness may be present in one or multiple joints and may be worse in the morning or after periods of inactivity.

Swelling and inflammation: This can occur in the joints, soft tissue, and internal organs. The affected area may appear red, warm to the touch, and swollen.

Fatigue: Many rheumatologic conditions can cause fatigue, which is a feeling of extreme tiredness that is not relieved by rest.

Fever: Some rheumatologic conditions such as lupus can cause fever, which is an abnormal elevation in body temperature.

Skin rashes: Rashes can be a symptom of some rheumatologic conditions such as lupus and Scleroderma. They can vary in size, shape, and color.

Muscle weakness: Some rheumatologic conditions can cause muscle weakness, which can lead to difficulty with movements and activities of daily living.

Loss of function: In advanced stages of rheumatologic conditions, the joints may become deformed and lose the ability to move, leading to a loss of function.

Numbness, tingling, and pain in the hands and feet: Some rheumatologic conditions can affect the nerves, leading to numbness, tingling, and pain in the hands and feet.

It is important to note that not all individuals with rheumatologic conditions will experience all of these symptoms, and some symptoms may be more prominent than others. It is best to consult a rheumatologist at SRV Hospital for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

Treatments offered at SRV Hospital

Some common treatments in rheumatology include:

Knee replacement surgery: This procedure involves replacing a severely damaged knee joint with a synthetic joint, typically made of metal alloys, high-quality plastics, and polymers, to alleviate pain and improve function.

Hip replacement surgery: This procedure involves replacing a damaged hip joint with an artificial joint, typically made of metal, ceramic, or very hard plastic, to reduce pain and improve function.

Synovectomy: This surgery is used to treat conditions that affect the synovium, a thin membrane that lines the inside of joints such as the knee, shoulder, and elbow, by removing a portion of the affected synovium.

Tendon repair: This surgery is used to fix a torn or otherwise injured tendon, which can restrict movement and cause pain, to restore function and alleviate pain.

Joint fusion: This procedure involves joining two bones that make up a joint permanently, which helps to reinforce, stabilize, and prevent movement between the bones and alleviate pain in the joint.
