Department of internal medicine (rheumatology)

The internal medicine (rheumatology) department at Teknon Medical Center Barcelona offers the latest advances in diagnosing and treating inflammatory and degenerative rheumatological diseases. The department is one of the few in Spain that performs regenerative medicine. This technique aims to replace, protect, or regenerate damaged cells, tissues, or organs. With the help of regenerative medicine, it is possible to stop the development of the disease and avoid aggressive operations for a long time. At the same time, medical acupuncture is gaining exceptional success among patients. Doctors use this method, which is currently based on the knowledge of anatomy, neurophysiology and biology, for pain relief. In diagnostics, rheumatologists prefer non-invasive techniques to visualize tendons, muscles, and joints without damaging or exposing the patient. Ultrasound of the joints and muscles allows specialists to see the internal structures and accurately diagnose the degree and severity of inflammation or injury.

The highly qualified rheumatologists of the department specialize in treating chronic rheumatic diseases that cause severe inflammation and pain. These diseases include rheumatoid arthritis, systemic autoimmune disorders, fibromyalgia, and back pain. New targeted biologic therapies allow doctors to control inflammation and enable patients to return to daily life without pain. To optimize the patient's quality of life, rheumatologists also use physiotherapy, including manual and exercise therapy.
