The Division of Rheumatology at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics provides expertise in the evaluation and treatment of a wide range of rheumatic, autoimmune, and musculoskeletal diseases in children.
Our multidisciplinary team understands the complex physical and emotional needs of a child with a chronic illness. Our team consists of board-certified pediatric rheumatologists, clinic nurses, a nurse manager, a care assistant, an on-site social worker, and research coordinators. We maintain strong relationships with occupational and physical therapists to optimize the therapeutic options we have for our families.
A new program is also being created to provide comprehensive, multidisciplinary treatment for patients with chronic pain.
