We are proud to offer rheumatology, a specialized service line that can treat and manage ongoing pain caused by autoimmune conditions or disorders. Our board-certified rheumatologist, Dr. Steven Behrendsen, brings his education and experience in diagnosing and treating arthritis and other conditions affecting the joints, soft tissues, and connective tissues in the body to Logansport Memorial Hospital for the benefit of our community. 

Arthritis is a painful condition that can become debilitating and cause those affected by it to lose their quality of life. Patients suffering from severe, long-term joint and muscle pain may find their ability to work and care for themselves compromised. In these cases, additional support from diagnostic and therapeutic resources provided by a rheumatologist can help primary care physicians make a more accurate diagnosis and provide more focused care. In addition to treating arthritis, Dr. Behrendsen also specializes in diagnosing and treating complicated autoimmune diseases, such as Lupus and scleroderma.
