Our rheumatology care deals with musculoskeletal problems, diagnostics and treatment of degenerative and inflammatory disorders.
You can contact us with the following problems:
- joint inflammations (gout, psoriatic arthritis)
- pain in extremities (tenosynovitis, tennis elbow, golf elbow, Achilles-tendinitis)
- articular cartilage damage (arthrosis)
