Convenient, On-Site Services

At the Northern California Arthritis Center we have made every effort to customize our facility to the unique needs of our patients.  We provide a comfortable and efficient infusion suite, extremity MRI and state-of-the-art bone density testing for osteoporosis.  Our numerous on-site services allow us to assess your condition quickly and minimize visits to other sites for testing.

Infusion Therapy: The recent introduction of new infusion therapies into the field of rheumatology has revolutionized the treatment of many types of arthritis, autoimmune illness, and osteoporosis.  If your condition requires an intravenous medication, you will appreciate our efficient and comfortable infusion suite.  During your treatment you will be cared for by our well-trained and highly experienced team of infusion nurses.  Also, our on-site facility ensures that there is always a physician close by.

Bone Densitometry (DXA):: We utilize the latest technology for bone testing, both to identify patients at risk for osteoporosis and to monitor effects of treatment.  The DXA scans are interpreted by physicians who are Certified Clinical Densitometrists.


MRI: Imaging studies are frequently used in the evaluation of joint pain.  Joint pain arises from damage to bone, cartilage, ligaments and tendons.  Changes in bone can be assessed by x-rays.  However, the other structures are best visualized by MRI.  The center has a dedicated extremity MRI scanner for detailed evaluation of joint disease.  The scans are interpreted by radiologists  specializing in musculoskeletal radiology .
