“You and Your Arthritis – Towards Happily Ever After”

Dr. Middleton

Dr. Middleton will provide an overview of recent advances in the understanding of the causes of arthritis, as well as its associated pain and difficulty functioning, but most importantly lots of things that you can do to get better.

Dr Middleton is an associate clinical professor rheumatologist, specializing in the non-surgical care of patients with joint and muscle pain, particularly associated with rheumatological disorders such as osteoarthritis.  Dr Middleton went to medical school at Boston University, completed his residency and fellowship at UT Southwestern in Dallas.  He joined the team at UC San Diego after almost ten years as Chief of Medical Specialties at Southwestern Medical Associates in Las Vegas.  He is board certified in rheumatology.

Dr Middleton became a physician out of a keen interest in science and the desire to help patients maintain a satisfying and active lifestyle.  He believes that his clinical wisdom, patience and honesty allow him to make a difference in the lives of his patients.  Dr Middleton has treated many former and recreational athletes who strive to maintain an active lifestyle in spite of certain muscle and joint challenges.  “Staying active in the right way is probably as big a factor in pain as the amount of damage to the joint.”

Dr Middleton ran cross-country in high school and was coxswain for the Boston University rowing team.  He currently walks and practices yoga.  Dr Middleton also writes fiction, composes music, plays keyboard and drums and is an amateur chef.

The Medical Expo is sponsored by the US Consular Agent, HealthCare Resources Puerto Vallarta and the Hotel Marriott. This no charge event will feature a vast area of local and international healthcare providers including insurance, physicians, local hospitals among many more!
