Services & Specialties

The Division of Rheumatology at Cincinnati Children’s strives to be a national and international leader in the care of patients with pediatric rheumatic diseases. We work to advance our field through our research, and we are preparing the next generation of specialists through our education programs.

We believe in family-centered care: as healthcare providers, we partner with families to best meet the needs of our patients. Our goal is to keep things as normal as possible and build on the strengths of every family member, with the understanding that parents can be their child’s best advocates. We are committed to the team approach and the continuity of care, and work to ensure that your child’s healthcare providers become a consistent, reliable part of your child’s life.
