Dayton Children’s hospital specializes in treating kids muscle, joint & autoimmune/autoinflammatory disorders. At Dayton Children’s Hospital we provide a team approach to care that may include board-certified pediatric rheumatologists, social workers, psychologists, nurse practitioners and registered nurses who specialize in treating rheumatic disorders. Diagnosis and treatment can be complex, so our pediatric rheumatologists work with other Dayton Children’s specialists to create a comprehensive plan of care that addresses all of your child’s symptoms. The Rheumatology Program at Dayton Children’s Hospital cares for children and adolescents with a broad range of rheumatologic and inflammatory diseases involving joints, muscles and connective tissues.
Rheumatology in children is much different than in adults. Kids have different social and emotional challenges and their bodies are continually growing creating a unique set of challenges. Only trained pediatricians are equipped to address these issues.
