Tamara from Edmonton asks: Do rheumatologists treat Giant Cell Arteritis?
While rheumatologists are often thought of as treating arthritis only, there are many conditions that we treat that can affect other areas of the body. Vasculitis, or inflammation of blood vessels, is an area of expertise for rheumatologists, including Giant Cell Arteritis. Examples of other conditions which can affect other organs besides joints include lupus, scleroderma, polymyalgia rheumatica, myositis, and osteoporosis.
