Advanced Treatment for Rheumatic Conditions

When your child has a rheumatic disease, it can be difficult to know where to start. Your child has a disease that is typically associated with older patients, but you need pediatric-centered care.

The Pediatric Rheumatology Program, a partnership between Arnold Palmer Hospital and the University of Florida, provides child-focused treatment for a variety of rheumatic diseases. Our team of doctors will educate your family on how to live with inflammatory conditions that affect your child’s joints, muscles, bones and even internal organs. Your child will learn how to live with chronic rheumatic diseases through the aid of our team of pediatric rheumatology experts.
