Patients at Copley Hospital are seen by Dartmouth-Hitchcock Rheumatologist Dr. Daniel A. Albert via telemedicine for evaluations, follow-up exams, and recommendations for relevant therapies or interventions. This TeleRheumatology service uses live, two-way secure video on large format, high-definition mobile carts in the Multi-Specialty Outpatient Clinic at Copley Hospital.
Rheumatic diseases and conditions generally affect joints, tendons, ligaments, bones and muscles. Inflammation is common with rheumatic conditions, causing swelling, redness, heat and pain. Internal organs may also be affected. Some conditions can be debilitating or result in life-threatening complications.
There are more than 100 conditions referred to as rheumatism. Typically, they are broken into categories based on location and symptoms. For example: bursitis is an example of localized rheumatism; TMJ (jaw joint pain) is considered regional rheumatism; and Fibromyalgia is an example of generalized rheumatism.
