Centre of Rheumatology
The Centre of Rheumatology is the biggest unit in Estonia specialising in diagnostics and treatment of rheumatic diseases. We diagnose and treat various joint inflammations, systemic connective tissue diseases, systemic vasculitis, bone diseases. For our diagnostics, we use high-level medical technology with top specialists. We treat each patient as a whole and, if necessary, we consult with specialists from other fields. We work closely with our hospital's orthopaedists, spinal surgeons and rehabilitation doctors.
Since 2007, we have been using biological therapy in the treatment of joint inflammations and severe systemic diseases. Half of the patients receiving biological treatment in Estonia are being treated and monitored in our centre. New effective drugs are constantly being added to the rheumatologists' drug arsenal, thanks to which we are able to help patients more and more efficiently. We consider the most important thing to be timely treatment, which prevents the patient from losing their ability to work and allows them to continue a full life
