Rheumatology Care

Nearly 40 million people of all ages - one in seven Americans - are affected by arthritis or a related disease that affects the joints, muscles and bones. These diseases can cause severe health impairment leading to death, but their impact is usually reflected in restricted activity, loss of productivity, increased utilization of medical services and the high cost of medical and disability expenses.

KentuckyOne Health Rheumatology Associates provide care for patients with a wide range of rheumatic diseases, including arthritis, vasculitis, musculoskeletal, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, as well as other diseases of the bones and joints.

To schedule an appointment, call 859.629.7265.
