Message from the Chief

People who suffer from arthritis can’t wait for a cure.

Our team in the University of Arizona Division of Rheumatology offers improved access to help our patients find relief as soon as possible from the many new therapies now available. There are currently five faculty members, one physician assistant and four rheumatology fellows delivering care to adult rheumatology patients at the Rheumatology Physician Offices located on the campus of Banner – University Medical Center South, 2800 E. Ajo Way, Suite 103, Tucson, Arizona.

There is also a full-service infusion clinic delivering state-of-the-art biologic therapies, as well as intravenous osteoporosis medication, which is available to both University of Arizona physicians and outside referrals. Bone density measurements are available onsite, as is a full service phlebotomist.

  • Complementary and alternative therapies
  • State-of-the-art infusion clinic
  • Special expertise in autoimmune diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis and osteoarthritis

As part of our public outreach efforts through the center, we host a monthly lecture series, Living Healthy with Arthritis, that has a corresponding annual conference every January.
