Programs and services

Our division provides comprehensive services for children with rheumatic diseases. We see and evaluate children with musculoskeletal pain, fever of unknown origin or other inflammatory conditions. We offer our services in our clinics (outpatient services), but also provide care to children who are admitted to the hospital, as well as children who come to the Emergency room.

Conditions and treatments

The main diseases we treat are juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), connective tissue diseases (like lupus, scleroderma, dermatomyositis), systemic vasculitis (like Kawasaki disease), and periodic fever syndromes. Dr. LeBlanc also sees children with sport-related conditions.
