Welcome to Rheumatology

The Department of Pediatrics Section of Rheumatology is an integrated program between Children's Hospital Colorado and the University of Colorado.

The Section of Rheumatology focus spans the comprehensive care of children, teens, and young adults with a variety of common and rare inflammatory disorders affecting children, including juvenile idiopathic arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, vasculitis, scleroderma, juvenile dermatomyositis, and other immune dysregulation syndromes. Children’s Hospital Colorado is home to the only team of pediatric rheumatologists in the surrounding seven-state region, and receives patients referred by their physicians, health departments, inpatients providers, and by parents, themselves.

More than 5,000 patients are seen annually by the inpatient and outpatient rheumatology providers at the main hospital on the Anschutz medical campus, and at outreach sites including the Colorado Springs, North (Broomfield), and South (Highlands Ranch) campuses.
