Welcome to Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain Hospital

Department of Clinical Immunology & Rheumatology

The Department of clinical immunology & Rheumatology is a unique department dealing with entire spectrum of diseases of the immune system. Auto immune diseases affect nearly 10-20% of Indian population & includes Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), Psoriatic Arthritis, Vasculitis and Scleroderma etc. Delay in diagnosis, inadequate or inappropriate treatments by unscientific means can lead to chronic deformities, life-long illness, premature death and very high medical and social costs. There are also various myths in community about these conditions and the drugs used for their treatment, hampering the management of these otherwise well controllable diseases.
The Department is staffed with highly trained and experience with our paediatric and interventional radiology colleagues to provide medical and surgical management of such diverse lesions with satisfying results.
