Rheumatology at Mission Heritage Medical Group
At Mission Heritage Medical Group, we believe in multidisciplinary and
comprehensive care. Our rheumatologists can involve a wide range of respected
experts in your care, from orthopedic surgeons and pain medicine specialists
to endocrinologists and physical therapists. This allows comprehensive
care that is not only more convenient but more effective.
Our commitment to providing the finest evidence-based medicine means we
are continually applying the latest research and improvements in care,
from new infusion therapies to cutting-edge biologics (which "turn
off" the inflammatory response and prevent further damage of the
joint and surrounding tissues). But our fellowship-trained rheumatologists
not only apply the newest advances—they help develop them. By participating
in some of the most exciting research in the field of rheumatology today,
our physicians are involved in developing new therapies to minimize disability and pain.
Mission Heritage Medical Group’s Infusion Center serves patients
throughout all of Orange County and offers the latest in drug therapy
for osteoporosis and autoimmune diseases. We also offer the skills of
a Nurse Practitioner with a subspecialty in rheumatology, who collaborates
closely with the rheumatologists to provide the highest quality of rheumatology care.
