At Tulip Hospital we have a world-class rheumatology clinic with para-clinical back up like Physiotherapy / Occupational Therapy Units and specialized laboratory etc. Most of the patients and even the doctors are not well-versed with this specialty of Rheumatology that deals with chronic inflammatory disorders. We have Rheumatologists that conduct rheumatology and arthritis clinic daily on weekdays.
Rheumatology is a study of disorders of connective tissues, joints, muscles and immune system. The word rheumatology is derived from the Greek word rhematismos, of which rheuma means ‘stream’, since arthritis was believed to have resulted from internal flow of humours (body fluids). Based on scrutiny of medical and nonmedical literature, it has been established that Rheumatic diseases like Ankylosing Spondylitis, Gout and Osteoarthritis have existed for several thousand years.
