For Patients

At the Colorado Center for Arthritis and Osteoporosis, we specialize in rheumatology, a subspecialty of medicine that deals with disorders of the joints, connective tissues and the immune system. We treat many diseases, from the common to the very rare, including arthritis, autoimmune disorders, and osteoporosis.

Our providers use a combination of a careful patient history, a thorough physical examination and selected diagnostic testing (e.g., blood work, x-rays, ultrasound) to arrive at a diagnosis. They then prescribe various drug and non-drug therapies to treat each patient’s illness. While rheumatologists do not perform surgery, they work closely with orthopedists and other surgeons when surgery is necessary to treat their patients.

Our providers also communicate with referring physicians on a regular basis, consulting with them and providing them with your test results so that all your providers can work as a team for the benefit of your health and well being.
