The University Health Center of Excellence* for Arthritis and Rheumatology focuses on diagnosing and treating arthritis and other disorders related to the muscles, joints and bones. Services include the diagnosis and treatment of autoimmune disorders which affect the immune system. Our physicians and staff work with you and your primary care physician to diagnose and treat these rheumatic disorders so you can live a healthy and active life.
The Center of Excellence for Arthritis and Rheumatology was established by the Louisiana Legislature in 1990 for the development and expansion of multidisciplinary, interdepartmental clinical programs, research, and education related to arthritis and rheumatology. The development of these comprehensive programs related to arthritis and other rheumatic diseases has established the Center of Excellence for Arthritis and Rheumatology as one of the country's exemplary rheumatology programs.
