Rheumatology focuses on the diagnostics and treatment of systemic and degenerative joint diseases affecting various tissue within the body such as joint, bone, spine, muscle, ligaments and tendon insertions. The most common diseases include systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis or Bechterew’s disease.
Comprehensive Diagnostics and Treatment – cooperation within the team
In rheumatologic diseases, cooperation with other medical departments – pulmonary, neurology, rehabilitation and internal medicine, orthopaedics, cardiology and others are essential. Pavel Kolar´s Centre of Physical Medicine utilises all of these departments and our rheumatologist subsequently determines and coordinates all the diagnostic methods and treatment of the patient’s disease. This collaboration among various physicians is supported by sharing common patient documentation.
Patient Care – time for examination and treatment
In terms of determining the correct diagnosis, it is crucial to find the cause of the patient’s problems. Thanks to the above standard length of the initial examination, it is possible to better identify the cause of the problems and to suggest a strategy for subsequent treatment.
