Overview
The field of Rheumatology encompasses many diseases; there are over 100 types of arthritis alone. Most patients at the JGH Division of Rheumatology have pain in the joints not caused by trauma. Some have quite complicated systemic diseases, of which joint pain may be only one component. The division also sees patients with diseases such as bursitis and tendonitis, which occur around joints.

The division offers out-patient services in the hospital via the private offices of Drs. Baron and Berkson, as well as via a once-a-week out-patient clinic. It also directs the Osteoporosis Clinic, which is held all day every Wednesday, and provides an in-patient consultation service.

The division is involved in the training of McGill Rheumatology fellows, with typically at least one fellow on the service.
