The Orthopaedic and Rheumatologic Institute launched its first multidisciplinary clinic combining the expertise of non-operative orthopaedists and rheumatologists in one location at the new Arthritis & Musculoskeletal Center. This center offers timely, "one stop shopping" for the evaluation of patients with joint pain due to arthritis and associated musculoskeletal problems.
Our evaluation and treatment center brings together experts so the cause of your joint pain can be quickly and appropriately diagnosed. In some cases, the problems require evaluation and treatment by more than one member of the team or the problem may require a timely referral to other specialists within Cleveland Clinic. Our doctors have a specific interest in joint pain problems and can work efficiently within a multidisciplinary team to provide you with the highest level of care so you can return to your usual level of activity.
The Arthritis & Musculoskeletal Center team includes rheumatologists, non-operative orthopaedic physicians, musculoskeletal radiologists, a physical medicine and rehab physician, physical and occupational therapists, brace technicians and musculoskeletal patient educators.
