Specialists in the Division of Rheumatology at Mayo Clinic in Florida provide state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic diseases (affecting the joints and connective tissue) in adults.

Doctors in the division have been trained in internal medicine and rheumatology. Besides caring for patients, medical staff are also involved in research to improve treatment options and patients' quality of life, and in training new specialists.

Rheumatologists work closely with specialists in other Mayo Clinic departments to provide patients with coordinated and comprehensive care.
