Our expertise in surgical interventions for rheumatoid arthritis and other rheumatologic conditions is just one aspect of our commitment to providing comprehensive care. Our team of dedicated surgeons and specialists take a patient-centred approach, carefully assessing each individual's needs and personalizing treatment plans accordingly. 1 Surgery As our primary speciality, we offer a wide range of surgical procedures to address joint problems, restore function, and reduce pain. Our surgeons have extensive experience in joint replacement, arthroscopy, and various hand, wrist, and finger surgeries. 2 Medications In addition to surgical treatments, our specialists prescribe disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and biological treatments to slow the progression of rheumatoid arthritis and reduce joint damage. We also focus on pain management through the use of painkillers and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). 3 Supportive treatments To complement our surgical expertise, we collaborate with physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and podiatrists to improve your mobility, joint flexibility, and ability to perform daily tasks. These treatments can help you better manage the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and maintain an active lifestyle post-surgery. 4 Complementary therapies Some patients may find short-term relief from alternative therapies such as acupuncture, massage, or osteopathy. These therapies can be integrated into your treatment plan to support your surgical recovery and overall well-being. 5 Nutritional support and lifestyle changes Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet and incorporating regular exercise into your daily routine can help improve overall health and potentially alleviate some symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. Our team will provide guidance on dietary changes and exercise plans that may be beneficial for your condition, particularly during the post-surgical recovery phase. We will help you embrace a healthier, more active life with our evidence-based, individualized treatment plans.
