Personalized care for optimal joint health

Twin Cities Orthopedics is set to introduce rheumatology as a new specialty service this summer. To Schedule: Call 952-345-7701 and learn more and schedule. No referral needed.

Rheumatic conditions can make everyday activities difficult. These conditions affect your joints, bones, muscles, and
tendons, and are often caused by inflammation due to an autoimmune disorder. When your immune system mistakenly attacks
and damages healthy tissues in your joints, it can lead to pain, stiffness, and swelling, making it difficult to move
around freely. If you’re experiencing symptoms of a rheumatic condition, it’s important to seek medical attention to
receive a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Rheumatologic conditions can also impact other systems of your body, including your skin, eyes, lungs, kidneys, and
blood vessels.

At TCO, we offer comprehensive care for patients with musculoskeletal and rheumatic conditions. Our team of
board-certified rheumatologists uses the latest technology and treatments, including our state-of-the-art infusion
centers at TCO Hudson and TCO Woodbury, to manage a wide range of conditions. We take a
patient-centered approach, tailoring our treatment plans to your specific needs and goals. From medication management to
infusion therapy, we are dedicated to providing compassionate care to improve your overall health and quality of life.

encephalomyelitis), or non-inflammatory spine problems (degenerative arthritis of the spine, spinal
stenosis, degenerative disc disease). We are able to help establish the diagnosis of fibromyalgia,
but do not manage it long term, so we can guide you to others who can best provide ongoing care.
