Lourdes Health is pleased to announce the opening of a Rheumatology Clinic located inside Lourdes Medical Center in Pasco. Joining the clinic is Dr. Sudeep Thapa, MD, who most recently completed a fellowship at Wayne State University and is board certified in rheumatology. Dr. Thapa completed his residency at Henry Ford Hospital and medical school at Wayne State University. He is fluent in English, Hindi & Nepali.
Dr. Thapa diagnoses and treats inflammatory arthritis and other autoimmune disorders affecting the joints, muscles and bones, including: rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, lupus, scleroderma, and polymyalgia rheumatica, as well as other autoimmune diseases.
