Treatments We Offer

Depending on the severity of your illness, we treat rheumatology disorders in different ways. Your personalized treatment plan will take into account your age, overall health, other illnesses, as well as your family history. Often your rheumatologist will recommend dietary changes, exercise, physical therapy, massage therapy, or heat and cold therapy.

We use a wide variety of medications to treat rheumatic conditions. These include pills, topical creams, and injections. Some of the most common types of medications are:

  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS): Including aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen
  • Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs: Including hydroxychloroquine, mycophenolate mofetil, sulfasalazine, and methotrexate
  • Biologics: The latest generation of medications, including adalimumab, etanercept, infliximab, and rituximab
  • Corticosteroids: To decrease inflammation and control disease flares
  • Topical treatments: Including pain-relieving creams and gels such as lidocaine and topical NSAIDS
  • Injection therapies: Including cortisone/corticosteroids and viscosupplementation injections

If you need an infusion treatment for a rheumatologic condition, we provide care at the Mount Sinai Queens Infusion Center.
