The Arthritis & Musculoskeletal Center is a multidisciplinary clinic combining the expertise of non-operative orthopaedists and rheumatologists in one location. 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.

Join the Cleveland Clinic and Arthritis Foundation for the Arthritis Expos!

Arthritis Foundation | Cleveland Clinic

There are more than 50 million Americans living with Arthritis – 2,648,000 are living in Ohio alone. These numbers will only continue to grow if we do not take a stand. The Cleveland Clinic and Arthritis Foundation of Northeast Ohio have partnered together to host four annual events located in the greater Cleveland area.

The Arthritis Expos are free, educational events open to the public. Each event features presentations from Cleveland Clinic health care providers sharing the latest findings in joint replacement, non-operative options and biologic treatments. Be sure to check out the medical exhibits where you will also find the latest updates in Arthritis.

Upcoming Events

Q. What is the difference between posterior and anterior hip or knee surgery?
Q. Will the quick pain relief products like copper bracelets, creams, and braces work for me?
Q. Foods, supplements and home remedies – what works and what doesn’t?
Q. How do I know if I have arthritis in my back?
