Dr. Belhorn earned her undergraduate and medical degrees at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She completed her residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and then moved north to fulfill a Rheumatology fellowship at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. She is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and also received certification in the subspecialty of Rheumatology.

After practicing in Houston, Texas for six years, Dr. Belhorn returned to North Carolina where she joined Durham Rheumatology in 1999. Durham Rheumatology now operates as EmergeOrtho Rheumatology, and Dr. Belhorn continues treating patients at the main campus in Durham as well as in Chapel Hill, NC. Her clinical interests include general rheumatology as well as the connective tissue diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.

Dr. Belhorn is the Director of Clinical Trials for Rheumatology at EmergeOrtho, P.A. Our trials typically involve the disease states of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. This represents another avenue for treatment for our patients and helps to advance clinical research in rheumatology.

Dr. Belhorn is wonderful, as is her entire staff. Everyone there is knowledgeable, professional and friendly. I also have seen various orthopedic doctors there and have had great experiences and results as well. This place offers a lot of services too. Very clean offices and treatment rooms. I have been under their care for over 20 years.
