Surgery for Rheumatoid Arthritis in Hands Perth

Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the leading causes of joint pain and inflammation. It is known as an autoimmune disorder, caused by the body mistakenly attacking the lining of the joints (the synovium). Over time, the illness can cause joint stiffness in the hands and damage ligaments and tendons, inhibiting the movement of the fingers.

Rheumatoid arthritis surgery is performed when non-surgical treatments have failed to control the disease. The procedure helps to reduce swelling and repair damage to affected areas, reducing pain and improving the overall function.

Taking care of yourself after surgery

The hands are highly pain-sensitive, and pain may be severe enough to require analgesics. To reduce movements and allow the repairs to hold firmly, you may need to wear a splint. Rehabilitation is also necessary to achieve maximal use of your hands after the procedure.

Success rates depend on the type of deformity, and complete recovery may take months to years.
