Most patient care activities are carried out in the Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine on the University of Chicago Medicine's Hyde Park campus. We offer special programs for patients with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematous, scleroderma, gout, metabolic arthritis and vasculitis. In addition to making sure our patients are establishing relationships with specific physicians and nurse members of the rheumatology staff, we also spend time during our outpatient clinic visits educating patients about their medical problems.
We're involved in a wide array of clinical research projects, giving our patients the chance to participate in studies of new treatments. Our scientific advances are readily and regularly incorporated into patient care.
