The Division of Pediatric Rheumatology at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital strives to provide exceptional care for children and adolescents with rheumatic diseases. 

Pediatric rheumatic diseases differ significantly from adult rheumatic conditions, and require specialized care with the considerations of growth, development and quality of life of pediatric patients.  With the specialized and unique training of our pediatric rheumatologist, we offer expert and quality care tailored for each child’s needs in a pediatric focused environment.
