The Rush Lupus Clinic specializes in the care of patients diagnosed with lupus. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or lupus) is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks one's own healthy cells and tissues, causing inflammation and damage to various organs. Early diagnosis and timely treatment can help to prevent and limit organ damage.
The goal of the Rush Lupus Clinic is to provide expert, compassionate and comprehensive clinical care and to facilitate the best possible quality of life for patients with lupus. Our approach is to diagnose early, perform timely screening to detect early organ involvement and encourage evidence-based, state-of-the-art treatments.
We believe that medical care and quality of life can be improved through patient education and active participation in one's own treatment. The clinic offers coordinated care with primary care physicians and experts in various departments and specialties.
Patient care services are provided by physicians at the Rush Lupus Clinic. They include the following:
- Diagnosis of lupus
- Longitudinal care and ongoing management of lupus
- Onsite laboratory, X-ray and bone mineral density testing
- Onsite infusion therapies
- Onsite vaccinations and PPD testing
- Opportunity to participate in clinical trials and other research.
