Department of Rheumatology
INTRODUCTION

Bone & Joint diseases are very much prevalent in our society. Most common Rheumatic diseases are characterized by chronic pain and progressive physical impairment of joint and soft tissues. They are costly to individuals, families; and society in both economic and social terms. Clinicians and other care providers must understand individual and family expenses and social consequences of the rheumatic disease so that they may be able to respond to these challenges.

The Division of Rheumatology at Liaquat National Hospital is an established clinical and academic center which concentrates clinically on providing care to patients affected by a variety of common and uncommon Rheumatic disorders. Each person in the department embraces two values that guide our action and work.
A relentless pursuit of excellence in everything we do; caring about patients, their safety and compliance.

 

SERVICES

Out Patient Clinics
It is our mission to provide excellent patient care while seeking to better understand the causes, natural history and best treatment. Patients with arthritis and all other rheumatic diseases are seen in our clinic. A large number of new and follow up patients are seen weekly, who have complicated Rheumatic disorders and common musculoskeletal problems. (Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis,  Vit-D deficiency, Rheumatoid Arthritis & Vascultis).Our department works in collaboration with Medicine, Nephrology and other departments in the hospital, to deal with different complications of the Rheumatic diseases


Osteoporosis Clinic
Osteoporosis is a metabolic bone disease characterized by low bone mass and micro architecture deterioration of bone tissue; with a consequent increase in bone fragility and susceptibility to fractures. Women at the age of 50 have a 40% chance of having an Osteoporotic fracture. Apart from treating osteoporosis patients on a daily basis, we have also set up a specialized clinic for osteoporosis, where we deal with screening and counseling of patients for prevention of osteoporosis and its complications.


Vasculitis Clinic
We have recently started vasculitis clinic which is one of its kind in our country.
Vasculitis is an autoimmune disease which is rare but can affect all age groups. There are various types of autoimmune diseases and it can affect any part of body.
Some of them improve on there own but mostly need treatment and they can be life threatening. Duration of treatment varies with the type of vasculitis.

 

Joint And Soft Tissue Injections
Rheumatology department provides effective services and helps relieve the pain of a number of patient’s everyday. Judicious use of intraarticular glucocorticoid and viscosupplement are appropriate for patients with arthritis who can not tolerate pain or whose pain is not effectively controlled by analgesics and anti inflammatory agents.
Joint aspiration is also performed to establish a diagnosis and to relieve effusion (joint swelling). Crystal identification in Synovial fluid is done by our team to make the diagnosis of Gout or Pseudogout.


Physiotherapy Services

There is always a close working relation ship between a rheumatologist and a physiotherapist. Besides a well established Physiotherapy department in Liaquat National Hospital, we have trained and very enthusiastic physiotherapists in our division who helps our patients with different types of joint and muscle problems, suggests exercises as well as provides physiotherapy services under the same roof.
