The Rheumatology Department treats acute and chronic rheumatic diseases. Our rheumatologists and rheumatology nurses work with your GP, physical therapists, occupational therapists, etc. to propose the optimum treatment for you.
The Royal Belgian Society for Rheumatology has drawn up coronavirus guidelines for people with rheumatic diseases. These can be found through this link. We recommend that you follow these guidelines. Should you have any further questions, please contact your GP or the rheumatology nurse Ms Inge Huys on +32 9 246 71 60 or the attending rheumatologist on +32 9 243 76 76.

The acute and (chiefly) chronic conditions we treat can be divided into the following large groups:
- chronic inflammatory joint disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) and crystal arthritis (e.g. gout)
- systemic disorders such as systemic lupus, Sjögren's Syndrome, dermatomyositis and polymyositis, systemic sclerosis, vasculitis, Adult Onset Still Disease and sarcoidosis
- metabolic bone diseases, such as osteoporosis and Paget's Disease

We work across disciplines if required. Our department also maintains good relations with academic centres and collaborates on scientific research. The quality of our care and your satisfaction are always our top priority.
