Rheumatologists are internists with training in the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis and rheumatism. Their strong foundation in internal medicine prepares them as specialists to manage localized and systemic (generalized) pain. For example, they treat localized pain in the back, neck, shoulders and hands, including osteoarthritis, tendonitis and bursitis, and systemic pain caused by diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or systemic lupus. Carpal tunnel syndrome, Lyme disease and osteoporosis are other examples of the diverse problems treated by rheumatologists. 

The complex and changeable nature of many rheumatic diseases often requires ongoing assessment and evaluation. The physicians at Lafayette Arthritis and Endocrine Clinic (LAEC), encourage the formation of close physician/patient relationships as they monitor conditions and modify treatment. Our goal is to reduce pain and maximize function.
