Unfortunately, arthritis treatment is most beneficial in the earliest and latest stages of the condition. arthoscopic surgery for Arthirits in kee is not advisible Anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, glucosamine, steroid injections, Synvisc, are all viable options for early stages of the condition, and total knee replacement is an excellent treatment for late stage arthritis. The problem is treatment of people in the middle ground. Working with the aforementioned treatment options, to find a treatment regimen best suited to the individual is an important job of an orthopedic surgeon.
