Infectious Disease

NOMS’ infectious disease specialists focus on the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses or infections in the body that are caused by microorganisms like bacteria, parasites, fungi, or viruses.

Our Infectious disease specialists are trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and find the right diagnosis to create treatment plans.

When other medical specialists, such as surgeons or obstetricians are involved, they coordinate patient care and manage difficult medical problems associated with that care.

In addition to consulting with other specialists as needed, there are many tests and diagnostic tools that infectious disease physicians use to find an accurate diagnosis after conducting a physical exam. These may include: throat swabs, spinal taps, blood and urine tests, stool samples, tissue biopsies, or imaging scans.

At a Glance


Bacteremia is the presence of bacteria in the bloodstream. Left untreated, the bacteria can spread to different areas of the body and cause serious complications, like sepsis. Treatment will likely start with antibiotics but will vary dependent upon the severity of the diagnosis.



Osteomyelitis is an infection that occurs in the bone. It is a very serious condition with symptoms including pain, chills, or fever. Treatment may involve surgery and antibiotics.



Septic Arthritis

Septic arthritis is an infection in the joint that can be caused by different types of bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Septic arthritis can also be caused by an open wound or an animal bite.
