When your immune system is functioning properly, it protects your body from disease. If you have an autoimmune condition, your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body. There are many types of autoimmune diseases, and they can affect many parts of the body. Our rheumatology specialists treat people of all ages with musculoskeletal and autoimmune disorders that can cause pain, swelling, stiffness and deformity.
