Cody Regional Health Rheumatology Clinic

Comprehensive Treatment for Autoimmune Diseases

Rheumatoid diseases are conditions where the body’s own immune system turns on itself and starts attacking healthy tissue. These diseases typically manifest as joint and muscle pains, like arthritis. We still do not know what causes these conditions or how to cure them, but there are numerous treatments available to manage the symptoms.

Why might you need to see a Rheumatologist? Here are some common disorders treated:

  • Gout and pseudogout
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Polymyalgia rheumatica
  • Psoriatic arthritis
  • Raynaud's disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Seronegative inflammatory arthritis
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus)
  • Spondylitis disorders (ankylosing spondylitis and related conditions)

  • "ER department went to great lengths to make this "out of towner" feel comfortable. Dr. Polley and Nurse Sarah were very professional and had a great bedside manner. It was my worst asthma attack and I felt very confident that I was getting top notch care."

    - Kelly
  • "Had to bring my daughter for a shoulder injury, on July 4th. I was thoroughly impressed. The staff was absolutely great, very friendly and compassionate. They took great care of my daughter and explained the diagnosis and discharge orders with great detail. I only wish our ER back home could be this professional. I know this is a smaller town and more tight knit, but this hospital/ER could set an example for the rest of the country. Thanks to the staff, physician and PA for the excellent care."

  • "I was a walk in patient on 5/29/18. I had been sick for several days while on a month long motorhome trip. The reception staff was friendly and efficient. I was seen quickly by the PA on duty, Robert Lang. He listened to me, did an exam, diagnosed my illness as acute bronchitis, and prescribed the necessary medication. I was feeling better in just a few days which enabled me to enjoy the remainder of my trip. I was sick and a long way from home so I really appreciated the excellent and friendly care that I received."
