While RA can’t be cured, effective treatment at Gardner Orthopedics can reduce the inflammation associated with the condition and prevent further damage to your joints. In most cases, prescription medications are used to prevent joint damage. These medications are called disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs). Another class of medications, called biologic response modifiers, may also be prescribed for complex cases by a Rheumatologist.
In severe cases, joint replacement may be recommended if your joints are damaged and prevent you from completing your normal daily activities.
