Rheumatology Care at National Jewish HealthWhen you have muscle or joint pain that does not improve, you may need the help of a rheumatologist.

At National Jewish Health in Denver, Colorado, we specialize in comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of patients with autoimmune diseases. Our team of doctors – including leaders in rheumatology, immunology and allergy – works together to diagnose and treat each patient. As the leading respiratory hospital in the nation, our Autoimmune Lung Center focuses on patients with connective tissue disorders to manage lung-related problems.
