What to expect from arthritis surgery

March 5, 2022

From the Medical News Today website

If arthritis causes serious damage to the joints, a person may require surgery. Arthritis surgery can help fix or replace a damaged joint, reduce pain, and improve the way the joint functions. 

Arthritis is the name for inflammation or swelling of a joint. More than 100 types of arthritis affect the joints, the surrounding tissues, and other connective tissues.

Common treatments for arthritis include anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, occupational therapy, assistive aids, and nonpharmacological therapies. 

If standard treatments do not work or the joints become too damaged, arthritis surgery may be necessary.

This article discusses the different types of arthritis surgery and their benefits. It also looks at some alternatives to surgery.
