Arthritis & Adult Reconstruction Surgery

Arthritis is not a single disease; there are over 100 types of arthritis and related conditions. Individuals of all ages, races, and sexes can and do have arthritis. Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the U.S. More than 50 million adults and 300,000 children have some form of arthritis. Arthritis occurs more frequently as people age, and women are more likely to have it than men. It can produce severe pain and limit the movement of one’s joints.

There a many means to treat arthritis depending on its severity. Oral medications, activity modifications, and an exercise program can often manage milder forms of the disease. There are several medications available that can be injected directly into the affected joint to reduce the pain and improve the function of the affected joint cartilage. Bracing can be beneficial for some patients who have a form of arthritis that causes a deformity. Arthroscopic surgery can be helpful in patients with pain coming from a loose or torn cartilage. Generally, end-stage arthritis can be successfully treated by joint replacement and reconstruction.
