St. Luke's Clinic – Rheumatology: Meridian

Rheumatology is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions and diseases that involve the joints, muscles, and bones. The most common concerns are osteoarthritis (the general breakdown of joint cartilage over time) and rheumatoid arthritis (systemic swelling in all or most joints at once). 

At St. Luke’s Clinic – Rheumatology, our team of specialists treats adults and children and works closely with your referring provider to integrate and coordinate your plan of care. We also maintain an active research department that enables patients to participate in clinical trials, when appropriate. We provide care in an environment that is both high-tech and high-touch for the best experience and most positive outcomes for our patients.
