Rheumatic diseases are challenging diseases which can be difficult to diagnose and can be extremely restrictive, affecting one’s daily life. At Hennepin Healthcare, we are committed to providing compassionate care to all patients who suffer from rheumatic conditions. Our focus is on keeping your joints, muscles, and bones healthy to regain your independence and continue doing the activities you enjoy the most.
Musculoskeletal ultrasound is a safe and painless method to aid rheumatologists in diagnosing soft tissue abnormalities that can be otherwise missed on a physical exam. Our rheumatologists are experts in using musculoskeletal ultrasound to assist in diagnosing inflammatory conditions in joints, blood vessels, muscles, tendons, and nerves.
