The Lupus Clinic cares for children and young adults affected by systemic lupus erythematosus, an autoimmune condition. In lupus, the body attacks tissues and organs such as joints, skin, kidneys, bone marrow and the brain.
With this joint clinic, children see a nephrologist and rheumatologist in the same visit. They are also seen by a dietitian, social worker and adult or pediatric rheumatology nurses. This clinic is currently run by Robert Sheets, M.D., (Rheumatology) and Peter Yorgin, M.D., (Nephrology) who develop and coordinate a treatment plan.
