Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
I am a Board Certified Rheumatologist who have been taking care of Arthritis and Rheumatic Diseases for over thirty years. My clinical interest is in Arthritis and related disorders like Gout, Gouty arthritis, Degenerative arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis as well as Osteoporosis. My goal is to treat the acute symptoms as well as to discuss with patients the strategies to manage the diseases for the long run as almost all disorders that we will be dealing with in my field are chronic and lifelong in nature.
In my field the procedures are either for diagnosis or treatment purposes.
For diagnosis we may need to aspirate the fluid from a swollen joint to help with diagnosis in particular in cases of crystal induced arthritis like gouty arthritis or psudogout. The evaluation for infection is best done by examining the fluid.
As a rheumatologist I am trained to extract the fluid from the joints and examin the fluid for it's color, clarity and viscosity to narrow down diagnostic possibilities and use special microscope to examine for infection as well as crystals like gout or psudogout crystals.
For treatment purposes I am experienced in treating acutely painful or swollen joints, bursae or tendon sheaths with corticosteroids. We may be able to relieve the pain of knee osteoarthritis by injecting "Hyaluronat" to create a cusion between the bones. Fibromyalgia trigger points may benefit from local injections along with other treatments.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
