Our orthopedists will focus on relieving your pain and improving joint function in your foot or ankle. First, we will consider what arthritis you have — osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the most common — and the extent of your pain and immobility. We may try different approaches and combinations to find the best treatment for you.
Our therapists may recommend exercises to help you stay limber. Integrative approaches such as acupuncture may reduce your pain and discomfort. We also may prescribe pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs. In severe cases, our surgeons may trim cartilage, change the alignment of bones or surgically fuse them, or perform joint replacement surgery of the hips, knees, shoulders, elbow and other areas.
