Autoimmune Disorders

Autoimmune disorders that affect the joints, muscles, bones, and soft tissues are Dr. Robert Koval’s specialty at Texas Orthopedics. Dr. Koval will conduct a thorough evaluation and order appropriate tests to see if you may have an autoimmune disorder that is causing your symptoms. He is an expert at diagnosing and treating the following conditions:

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis is a long-lasting autoimmune disease that causes the synovium, a membrane that lines our joints, to become inflamed and painful. It also causes joint swelling and deterioration. Pain, stiffness, and swelling are usually ongoing symptoms, even during rest.
  • Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis, affecting approximately 21 million Americans. It causes the cartilage covering the end of the bones to gradually wear away, resulting in painful bone-on-bone rubbing.
  • Gout is a disorder that can cause sudden joint pain. It occurs most commonly in the big toe, although it may affect other joints. Gout is caused by the buildup of uric acid, a substance found naturally in the body and in certain foods.
  • Lupus is an autoimmune disorder that has a wide variety of symptoms, so it can often be confused with other diseases. Lupus can be fatal, affecting the joints, kidneys, and skin. Proper diagnosis and treatment have significantly increased these patients' quality of life and life expectancy.
  • Osteoporosis is the most common bone disease, causing progressive bone loss and increasing the risk of fractures.
  • Ankylosing Spondylitis
  • Psoriatic Arthritis
  • Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome
  • Dermatomyositis
  • Sjogren's Syndrome
  • Vasculitis
  • Scleroderma
  • Lyme Disease
  • Pseudogout
  • Relapsing Polychondritis
  • Reactive Arthritis
  • Raynaud's Disease
