Rheumatology includes the detection and treatment of musculoskeletal diseases and systemic autoimmune conditions. Rheumatic diseases typically cause pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints, muscles and bones.
Autoimmune conditions occur when the immune system sends inflammation to areas of the body when it is not needed, causing damage or symptoms. These diseases can also affect the eyes, skin, nervous system and internal organs. Rheumatologists treat joint disease similar to orthopedists, but do not perform surgeries.
