The pediatric rheumatology team provides comprehensive evaluation, treatment, long-term management and follow up of rheumatologic and immune system disorders in children. We have the expertise, experience and technology to address the full gamut of problems. This includes a fully equipped infusion unit, as well as the ability to perform joint aspirations and certain joint injections. Because diseases of the immune system tend to be chronic, and sometimes lifelong, we work with children and families over a long period of time. We can even help transition them into adult services at Stony Brook when the time comes to ensure continuity of quality care. We also connect families with resources in the community, as well as participate in outreach efforts such as the annual Arthritis Foundation walk.
