At Sacred Heart’s Orthopedic Center, we understand the complexity of treating individuals who suffer from arthritis. Our comprehensive orthopedics program is there for you every step of the way, whether you need surgery, physical and occupational therapy, or a combination of the two.

An estimated 46 million Americans are affected with some form of arthritis or rheumatic disease and that number is expected to grow to over 67 million people over the next two decades.  According to the Arthritis Foundation, there are over a hundred different arthritic and rheumatic, which are characterized by inflammation and loss of function of one or more connecting or supporting structures of the body.

The many different kinds of arthritis comprise just a portion of the rheumatic diseases. Some rheumatic diseases are described as connective tissue diseases because they affect the supporting framework of the body and its internal organs. Others are known as autoimmune diseases because they occur when the immune system which normally protects the body from infection and disease, harms the body's own healthy tissues.
