Rheumatology, the importance of a timely diagnosis

Rheumatology is the medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases, both for the musculoskeletal system and for other tissues and organs possibly involved in the complications of rheumatic diseases.

At Quisisana it is possible to undergo a rheumatological visit in Ferrara, and thus begin the most suitable treatment for the resolution or control of rheumatological diseases.

Rheumatological visit, how it takes place

The rheumatological visit at Quisisana, for a fee and not affiliated with the National Health System, is carried out by dr. Vincenzo Abbasciano in a structure of excellence. A nursing home that, since its inception, pays great attention to the selection of its specialists and the search for the best diagnostic and therapeutic methods.

In the field of rheumatology, early diagnosis is of particular importance, as it allows you to set up a correct therapeutic procedure, reduce the use of drugs and improve prognosis. The rheumatological visit allows you to prevent, diagnose and set up a treatment path for rheumatic diseases such as arthritis, arthrosis, rheumatoid arthritis and even osteoporosis.

During the visit, the rheumatologist inquires about the patient's state of health and collects information on his symptoms, lifestyle, pre-existing pathologies and familiarity with any diseases. He then continues with the clinical evaluation: palpation of the abdomen, auscultation of the heart, pressure measurement. If he deems it appropriate, he can prescribe diagnostic investigations such as blood tests, radiological or cardiological tests. The visit does not require any preparation, and takes about forty minutes in all.
