Arthritis Q & A

What is arthritis?

Arthritis is a chronic medical condition characterized by pain in your joints and can affect any joint in your body.

There are several different types of arthritis, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Gout
  • Psoriatic arthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common and is caused by mechanical wear of joint lining (cartilage), leading to pain and dysfunction.

How is arthritis managed?

Depending on the type of arthritis you have, Dr. Granata will discuss your options for arthritis treatment, with the goals of decreasing pain and improving your function.  Treatment options may include :

  • Anti-inflammatories
  • Weight loss
  • Steroid injections
  • Physical therapy
  • Surgery

Will I need surgery?

If conservative treatments aren’t effective at relieving your pain and dysfunction, Dr. Granata will help you understand your surgical options. Surgery options vary depending on your diagnosis, but may include joint arthroscopy, reconstructive and realignment surgery, or joint replacement.
