At University of Chicago Medicine, our board-certified rheumatologists are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care for adults and children affected by conditions of the joints, muscles, bones and connective tissue.

Second Opinions for Rheumatic and Autoimmune Diseases

We welcome the opportunity to provide a second opinion on your diagnosis or treatment plan. Our specialists can offer solutions not widely available at most hospitals and are dedicated to helping you understand your options so you can select the best care plan for your needs.

If you live outside of Chicago, you can access the expertise of our specialists without having to leave home through our remote second opinions program.


We are committed to providing the most advanced care for our patients and to developing new knowledge concerning diagnosis and treatment. Our rheumatologists are involved in a wide array of clinical research projects, giving our patients the chance to participate in studies of new treatments. Their scientific advances are readily and regularly incorporated into patient care.

Our research activities extend from laboratory-based, basic science investigations to patient care initiatives aimed at improving diagnosis and treatment. Our rheumatology research laboratories are supported by federal agencies (such as the National Institutes of Health) and private foundations (such as the Arthritis Foundation). The Gwen Knapp Center for Lupus and Immunology Research at the University of Chicago provides important support for the study of autoimmune disease. Current and recent testing of therapies developed at UChicago Medicine include studies aimed at modifying the course of diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and scleroderma. Patients also are involved in studies on systemic lupus, osteoarthritis, gout and inflammatory muscle disease.
