What is rheumatoid arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis, is an autoimmune and inflammatory disease, which means that your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake. This leads to inflammation or painful swelling in the affected parts of the body.
RA attacks many joints at once. Like the joints in the hands, wrists, and knees.

Why is it important to manage rheumatoid arthritis?

As we all know that in rheumatoid arthritis there is swelling in the joints. Now if you don’t treat it then the inflammation will keep on increasing and cause joint deformity.
Also rheumatoid arthritis is a progressive disease, which means the symptoms typically get worse. This can lower your quality of life. So it is important to manage rheumatoid arthritis.

If rheumatoid arthritis is left untreated, it can cause severe damage to the joints and some serious complications in the major organs.

What are the treatment options available now a day?

Surgical options for Rheumatoid arthritis

There are multiple options like-

This Surgery is performed to remove the inflamed lining of the joint which is called synovium. It can help reduce pain and improve the joint’s flexibility.

Tendon repair
Inflammation and joint damage may cause tendons around your joint to loosen or rupture. This can be repaired and the function of the joint can be restored

Joint fusion
When a joint replacement isn’t an option then Surgical fusion of the joint may be recommended to stabilize or realign the joint and to relief pain.

Total joint replacement
