Overview

The Division of Rheumatology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital deals primarily with the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis and autoimmune diseases. Our mission is the prevention, cure and relief of suffering from arthritis and rheumatic diseases, providing patient-centered, integrated care guided by research-based evidence.

Our practice of integrating clinical care with leading-edge research in every area of rheumatology puts us shoulder-to-shoulder with the world's most renowned hospitals. Our program is one of 8 centers in the United States funded by a Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Centers (MCRC) (P60) grant from the National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases. The arthritis center's multidisciplinary team diagnoses and treats arthritic, rheumatic and autoimmune disorders.

Chicago Magazine rated our rheumatologists among the list of the “Best Doctors in Chicago.” Additionally, U.S. News & World Report recognized us as a "high performing" hospital in the United States for rheumatology.
