Inflammatory Arthritis Center

Inflammatory Arthritis Center Research

While improved treatments over the past 10 years have helped many patients with inflammatory types of arthritis, there is still much to be done.

Extensive research indicates that the earlier appropriate treatment starts for inflammatory arthritis, the less the ultimate disability. The Divisionís Early Arthritis Initiative (EAI), a collaborative effort of Rheumatology, Social Work, and Nursing, and the only such program in the New York metropolitan area, is committed to the education of the community, local physicians, and individual patients.
