In brief: Not now

Osteoarthritis is an inflammatory condition affecting joints due to wear and tear. At this time, it can be effectively managed but not cured.

In brief: Not, at present

Arthritis can be modified but not yet reversed.
Arthritis involves damage to the smooth cartilage joint surfaces that provide a nearly frictionless environment. A number of procedures can replace parts of joints that are damaged. When associated with ligament instability or poor alignment they often fail. Cartilage restoration research continues to improve our future possibilities.
