Rheumatic Disorders

The Department of Orthopaedic and Joint Replacement at Vimhans Nayati Super Speciality is committed to offering exceptional treatment and care to patients suffering from various orthopaedic diseases and ailments including a wide spectrum of rheumatic disorders in both adults, as well as kids. Rheumatic disorder is an umbrella term used for various conditions that affect the joints, tendons, ligaments, bones and muscles, leading to chronic inflammation, pain and even loss of motion. In the majority of cases, the condition is triggered when a person’s immune system starts to act abnormally and attacks healthy body cells and tissues. The problem may even be genetic or the result of an underlying infection or unhealthy lifestyle practices. Studies have indicated that rheumatic diseases are more likely to affect women as compared to men.

Conditions we treat

We offer state of the art diagnostic and treatment facilities for the management of a wide spectrum of rheumatic disorders that include:

  • Osteoarthritis – It is the most common type of arthritis marked by the wearing out of the protective layer of cartilage that is present at the ends of the bones. The condition usually affects the joints present in the hands, knees, spine and hips. Although the condition can be managed with the right treatment and medications, the damage caused by it is irreversible.

Common symptoms associated with osteoarthritis include:

  1. Persistent pain, swelling and stiffness in the affected area
  2. Joint tenderness
  3. Decreased flexibility and range of motion
  4. Grating sensation
  5. Bone spurs
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) – It is an autoimmune disease that can affect any joint of your body and is marked by chronic joint pain and tenderness. The condition is not limited to the joints, but can also affect the skin, eyes, lungs and heart. RA affects the lining of the joints which eventually leads to bone erosion and joint deformity.

Symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis include:

  1. Joint tenderness
  2. Swollen joints
  3. Joint stiffness that worsens with time
  4. Fever
  5. Unexplained loss of appetite
  • Lupus – It is a chronic autoimmune disease marked by severe inflammation throughout the body. The condition is triggered when the immune system fails to identify the healthy cells and starts attacking them. The condition may range from mild to chronic and induce symptoms that include:
  1. Fever
  2. Rashes
  3. Skin lesions
  4. Headaches, confusion and loss of memory
  5. Body ache
  6. Chronic joint pain
  7. Breathlessness
  • Spondyloarthropathies – It is a form of arthritis that primarily affects the spinal bones and surrounding joints. The condition is marked by severe pain, redness and swelling and is more common in elderlies. Common symptoms associated with spondyloarthropathies include:
  1. Back pain
  2. Swelling in hip, shoulder, knee or elbow joints
  3. Inflamed finger and toe tendons
  4. Uveitis
  • Gout – Marked by sudden bouts or attacks of chronic pain, swelling and joint tenderness, gout is a complex type of arthritis that can affect anyone. The condition is triggered by increased levels of uric acid in the body which accumulates to form needle-like crystals. If left untreated for long, it can lead to irreversible joint damage as well as renal problems.
