Non surgical treatment of inflammation options include anti-inflammatory medication, steroids, iontophoresis of medications, and sometimes electrical acupuncture can be helpful. It may be that you will need to take anti-inflammatoiries until the arthritis is reduced.
TMJ expert. It sounds like your arthroscopies were not successful. See another surgeon who specialized in TMJ for another opinion. Make sure you're also being managed by a true TMJ expert (non-surgical).
