The Department of Rheumatology at the Internal Medicine III of the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus Dresden is the only Center in Dresden, which offers the entire spectrum of inpatient and outpatient rheumatology. The director of the Department is Prof. Dr. med. Martin Aringer, specialist in the field of internal medicine and rheumatology. There is a special focus on the treatment of patients with systemic autoimmune diseases (e.g. SLE), as well as on an early detection and treatment of inflammatory vascular diseases. 

A key focus of the Department of Rheumatology at the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus Dresden is given to inflammatory diseases of the vessels and spine. Besides, the scope of objectives of the Department includes also all diseases that have a mistaken excessive immunity reaction directed at different organ systems. The specialists of the Department under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Martin Aringer are the first to deal with the treatment of systemic autoimmune diseases. They are well aware of possible treatment options. If necessary, the specialists cooperate with the colleagues specializing in the corresponding organs.
