The Pediatric Rheumatology Clinic provides multidisciplinary comprehensive care to children with Rheumatic diseases and is located at Children's Wisconsin. 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.
Our team of doctors, nurses, therapists, and fellows are continuously working with patients and families to provide the best pediatric rheumatology care available. Children with rheumatic illnesses need special care and Drs Williams, Co, Nocton, Olson and Verbsky are committed to cutting-edge choices in treatment. Our team of clinical researchers have several clinical trials open for enrollment and are confident the knowledge gained through the trials will translate to better care for you and/or your child in the clinic.
