Dr. Kenawy is dedicated to providing quality Rheumatologic Care to his patients.
Rheumatology is a specialty practice of internal medicine focused upon the non-surgical evaluation and treatment of rheumatic diseases. In general, rheumatologic diseases are characterized by abnormalities of the immune system. A common manifestation of these diseases is arthritis.
Rheumatologists have special interests in unexplained rash, fever, arthritis, anemia, weakness, weight loss, fatigue, joint or muscle pain, autoimmune disease, and anorexia. Some diseases are rare and often more challenging to diagnose by primary care providers. Rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, Adult Still's disease, dermatomyositis, polymyositis, polymyalgia rheumatica, Sjogren's syndrome, vasculitis, scleroderma, mixed connective tissue disease, sarcoidosis, Lyme diease, osteoarthritis, back pain, gout, pseudogout, relapsing polychondritis, Henoch- Schonlein purpura, reactive arthritis, fibromyalgia, Raynaud's disease, iritis, osteoporosis, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy are some of the major diseases which are managed by rheumatologists.
We also treat soft tissue rheumatic syndromes such as tendonitis, trigger finger, and bursitis. Some diseases may require joint aspirations or therapeutic joint, tendon, bursal, or muscle injections in addition to medical treatments.
Our patients are men and women over age 15, who come from all walks of life. While the majority of our patients live in Northwest Florida, patients travel from other parts of Florida and surrounding areas such as Alabama and Georgia to be treated by Dr. Kenawy.
Ultrasound diagnosis of arthritis and ultrasound guidance of joint injection therapy is state of the art rheumatologic care. Not only are we able to detect early forms of arthritis using this technique, but this helps us enhance the accuracy of procedures while reducing unneeded discomfort.
The availability of more highly specialized medications known as biological agents has altered the course of many chronic inflammatory diseases. As a direct result, the quality of life for many of these patients has improved and many are able to live more meaningful lives. The most advanced treatments for arthritis and osteoporosis often require intravenous infusion treatments. Our infusion therapy department is staffed by registered nurses and our physicians are accessible for questions, concerns and additional assistance.
