The Division of Arthritis & Rheumatic Diseases specialize in providing consultative and continuing care services to patients with a variety of rheumatologic and autoimmune conditions. These include:
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
- Bursitis and Tendinitis
As OHSU is an academic training institution, it is common for the providers in these clinics to include Internal Medicine Residents and Rheumatology Fellows. Of course, all patients are staffed with and seen by the Rheumatology Faculty at each visit. Our Physicians also see their own private patients at other times.
Arthritis & Rheumatic Diseases Clinic
The Arthritis & Rheumatic Diseases Clinic specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the joints, bones, tendons, bursae and muscles.
The Lupus/Scleroderma Clinic specializes in the treatment of Lupus and Scleroderma.
The Fibromyalgia Clinic specializes in the treatment of Fibromyalgia.
The OHSU Rheumatology Telemedicine Clinic uses computer technology to allow face-to-face evaluation and treatment of rheumatology patients attending the Wellness Center on the Warm Springs Reservation, which is more than 100 miles from Portland. Recently, the OHSU attending physician, Michael R Liebling, M.D., FACR, with the assistance of Dee L. Gordon MS, RN, CWOCN, CFCN, the participating nurse at the Wellness Center, conducted this clinic from Neustadt, Germany, over a distance of more than 5,320 miles. This very well may be the method by which patients in rural America get access to top notch specialty care in the future. We at the Division of arthritis & Rheumatic Diseases feel privileged to participate in this pioneering effort.
We only see patients on a referral basis. This referral can be obtained by a primary care physician or other medical providers. Exceptions to this policy are made for those who volunteer to participate in a research protocol.
