Arthritis treatment and surgery

Arthritis is inflammation of a joint, which results in pain, swelling, stiffness and limited movement. There are more than 100 types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Arthritis experts at Wayne State University Physician Group create a personalized treatment plan for each patient. Treatment depends on the type of arthritis you have, its location, the severity of your pain and underlying medical conditions. The goal of arthritis treatment is to reduce joint pain and inflammation, prevent damage and improve joint function.
