At the Forefront of Advancements in Rheumatology

Rheumatology is the subspecialty of internal medicine for the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis and other inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.

Clinical research at EmergeOrtho

We believe the availability of clinical trials is a major resource for our patients, which is why we help provide access to cutting-edge therapies when needed. Our participation in clinical research keeps us at the forefront of the newest advances in rheumatology.

EmergeOrtho’s active clinical research program includes clinical trials of new medications under study for rheumatic diseases. We have participated in clinical trials for most of the rheumatoid arthritis medications that have become available over the past 20 years. We have also collaborated with researchers at Duke University and the University of North Carolina’s Thurston Arthritis Research Center.

If you are interested in participating in a clinical trial, please contact us.
