At Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, the Pediatric Rheumatology Clinic provides multidisciplinary comprehensive care to children with Rheumatic diseases. We also offer diagnostic services to evaluate children with symptoms of rheumatic disease. In addition, our physicians actively conduct research and drug trials to further advance treatments available to patients.
The rheumatology team provides care solely related to the child's rheumatologic illness, so children seen in our clinic continue to see their primary care providers.
We serve children - from newborns to young adults - and their families. We believe education and treatment should include the child's parents/care givers, since children need assistance with health care practices. Patients also are encouraged to learn skills and develop attitudes and habits conducive to long-term health.
