In brief: No but there is

Treatment and this would be best guided by a rheumatologist.
First, you have to optimize your health in terms of weight control, not smoking & regular exercise along with various combinations of medication options that will be prescribed by the rheumatologist in addition to possible pt and orthopedic consultation. There are now disease modifying drugs as well.

In brief: No

However, tnf agents such as enbrel, Humira and Remicade (infliximab) are extremely effective not only in controlling the symptoms but in helping to prevent progression of the disease.
