How soon, if at all, can synovitis in the knee (caused by gout) return after a synovectomy?

Gout: Synovitis can return immediately. Stay hydrated and take your gout meds to lessen the chance of return.

Anytime: There is no value from synovectomy in gout. Synovectomy is neither a treatment nor cure for gout.
