If we say “rheumatoid disease” or “Division of Rheumatology,” people are commonly thinking of the department that treats rheumatoid arthritis; however, there are many diseases raised due to immunity disorder in addition to rheumatoid arthritis. The clinic that specifically treats these diseases is referred to as the Division of Rheumatology.
Our hospital has started to diagnose and treat various joint and connective tissue diseases since 1987. The Division of Rheumatology was taken as a separate clinic in 1995 within the hospital to provide more specialized and better quality of medical services ever than before. Also, we are trying hard to provide the medical services best-suited to individual patients by introducing and developing the advanced treatment methods of rheumatology that is quickly developed, through our consistent research and treatment efforts.
