Rheumatology is generally thought of as a medical field that treats arthritic conditions, but it actually involves a wide range of joint, soft tissue and muscle conditions. Physicians who specialize in rheumatology manage and treat the muscle loss and weakened joints that can be the result of these conditions.
Dedri Ivory, M.D. is the first rheumatologist to practice in our community. Dr. Ivory specializes in treating patients with arthritis, osteoporosis, gout and other diseases that cause muscle, bone and joint pain. Board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Ivory completed her residency at Akron General Medical Center and her rheumatology fellowship at the University of Missouri. She treats patients at Street Clinic, which features a convenient on-site infusion area where patients may receive IV treatments, if needed.
