Pediatric Rheumatology Services
Care for Joints, Tendons, Ligaments, Bones and Muscles
A Pediatric Rheumatologist specializes in treating childhood rheumatic diseases. Rheumatic diseases and related conditions can include more than 100 disorders that typically affect the joints, tendons, ligaments, bones and muscles. There are few cures for rheumatic diseases, but proper treatment can make a difference. Therapies can make a big difference for patients by relieving pain, lessening inflammation, and slowing or stopping damage to joints.
Dr. Ashley Blaske is a dually trained and board certified pediatric and adult rheumatologist. She values the opportunity to build long-term relationships with her patients, working together to treat their disease and acheive their goals. Dr. Blaske enjoys watching her patients return to normal life after treating their physical limitations.
In addition to pediatric and adult rheumatology, her areas of clinical specialty also include systemic lupus erythematosus, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, dermatomyositis, scleroderma, and vasculitis.
