Pediatric rheumatology conditions affect a child’s joints, tendons, ligaments, bones and muscles. A rheumatologist is a doctor who is specially trained to diagnose and treat these conditions.

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is home to one of only a handful of pediatric rheumatology clinics in Georgia. Our rheumatology team strives to incorporate the special, individualized needs of every child while continually monitoring the effectiveness of every treatment plan.

Each year, our pediatric-trained providers manage more than 7,500 patient visits.

What rheumatology conditions do we treat?

We care for children and teens with a wide range of rheumatic diseases, from common to complex.

  • Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO or CMO)
  • Juvenile dermatomyositis
  • Juvenile idiopathic arthritis
  • Mixed connective tissue disease
  • Periodic fever syndromes
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Scleroderma or systemic sclerosis
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus
  • Uveitis (in conjunction with ophthalmologists)
  • Vasculitis

How do we diagnose rheumatology conditions?
