History of centre

Spausdinti

The Centre of Rheumatology was established in 2003 after moving from the Red Cross University hospital, where it was an actively functioning department since 1960. During the following decades the treatment schemes and profile of patients underwent a wide range of changes. The rheumatism, that was highly a prevalent disease in the fifth and sixth decades of the XXth century, practically disappeared. Today the majority of degenerative diseases are treated by family doctors in outpatient clinics.. The Center of Rheumatology since its early years was a center for good clinical practice, outstanding science and up to date education. This was because of it’sclose relationship with the Institute of Experimental and Clinical Medicine (now - State Research Institute, Center for Innovative Medicine)headed by prof. A.Matulis and later – prof. A.Venalis, a center for research and clinical rheumatology. The spectrum of diseases coveredbythe rheumatology department is autoimmune and inflammatory diseases of joints and connective tissue diseases and to a lesser extent,degenerative diseases. In the inpatient department a command ofhighly qualified specialists is differentiating, diagnosing and treating complicated cases of rheumatic diseases of autoimmune and inflammatory origin, in particular rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and other arthropathies and systemic connective tissue diseases. The aim of the Centre is to become a referral center in the field of rheumatology in accordance with international standards.

All modern diagnostic tools and the latest treatment possibilities (such as biological therapy) are available for the patients of the Centre of Rheumatology. The number of patients being treated with this therapy is increasing every year. The goal of the Centre – optimal treatment, based on international guidelines, for every patient of the Centre.

In collaboration with the Centre of Hematology, the first autologous bone marrow transplantation was performed in a patient with rapidly progressive systemic sclerosis in 2012. This isa new and very progressive treatment method for systemic sclerosis patients.

Doctors of the Centre of Rheumatology are constantly updating their knowledge in the treatment of rheumatic patients in international congresses, they actively participate in scientific research, and present their results in international scientific meetings.
