platelet rich plasma. injected into the joint. find a doctor who does prolotherapy and most of them do platelet rich plasma into the joint. Surely worth a try and the alternative is fusion or total joint replacement and you are too young for the later visit www.getprol.com or www.aaomed/org for info and a doctor

How does taking anti-inflammatory steroid medication affect the outcome of vision correction surgery? My rheumatoid arthritis requires me to take steroid medication to keep it under control. I would like to have vision correction surgery for advanced myop

Unfortunately,

Unfortunately, rheumatoid arthritis is an absolute contraindication for laser vision correction. In fact, anyone with an autoimmune condition, such as rheumatoid arthritis is not considered a candidate for laser vision correction at this time. If you are considering vision corrective surgery, your best option would be a refractive lens exchange given your condition, but you would need to be evaluated by an eye surgeon to establish your candidacy for this procedure.

Dr. Jason Torrente answered:

I had an arthroscopy on my knee for rheumatoid arthritis three months ago. Th eknee is still painful and swollen. Why?

Depends

Rheumatoid_arthritis
Arthroscopy can only help you if you have any structural abnormality like a meniscal tear. RA is an autoimmune that can prematurally destroy a joint. You may need some form of oral treatment for RA if you are still symptomatic. You should follow up with your rheumatologist.

Different arthritis

Degenerative_joint_disease
There are over 100-150 different types of arthritis, maybe more. These are two separate types of arthritis. Rheumatoid is an inflammatory type of arthritis, with inflammation in the joints and actually in other areas of the body. Inflammation has leukocytic infiltration, redness, heat, capillary dilatation, and pain. Osteoarthritis is more like wear and tear arthritis - mechanical type .

Can rheumatoid arthritis be helped by tkr?

What is tkr

Knee
A tkr is a only replacement which would come as a part of active rheumatoid arthritis. The total knee replacement is a surgical procedure which is the knee that is severely damaged and cannot recover. When the joint is very damaged a total knee replacement can help. We would prefer to stop the damage with treatment before surgery is necessary.

Has anybody done an elbow replacement due to rheumatoid arthritis?

Best reason

Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is the best indication for total elbow arthroplasty (TEA). TEA restores function and provides excellent pain relief, in rheumatoid arthritis. After surgery lifting will be restricted, but range of motion is improved and usually pain free. Find a board certified orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in this type of surgery, usually a hand or shoulder and elbow surgeon.

What will happen if i do not take medication for rheumatoid arthritis?

Shorter life

Open-uri20120714-22947-1l4810z
Untreated rheumatoid arthritis shortens lives. The effect on the lifespan depends on the severity of the disease and the amount of inflammation. Rheumatoid arthritis commonly causes joint deformities which, if they occur, can only be reversed by surgery. It is best to get prompt diagnosis and treatment. RA is serious chronic disease like diabetes.

I was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. What can I expect?

Wide variety

Rheumatoid_arthritis
If you have a new diagnosis and you have positive blood work, it most likely will not be very aggressive and can be managed with medicines. Some people develop severe arthritis that require joint replacements but that is more common in those that develop RA at a young age. Be sure to find a good rheumatologist and an Ortho specialist if surgery is needed.
