Does a Rheumatologist perform surgery?

Rheumatologists diagnose and treat rheumatic diseases and conditions, but they do not perform surgery. Treatment options used by most of the Rheumatologists are medications such as anti-rheumatic drugs and NSAIDs(nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), joint injections, and aspirations.


What conditions are treated by Rheumatologists?

Rheumatologists can treat autoimmune and inflammatory conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system. Some of the medical conditions are:

  • Osteoporosis

  • Polymyositis

  • Obesity
  • Mechanical or surgical trauma to a joint
  • Hypermobility of joints

Is there any permanent cure for rheumatoid arthritis?

There is no permanent cure for rheumatoid arthritis. But there are many effective treatment options to prevent joint destruction and disease progression. Initially, anti-inflammatory drugs are needed to slow down the inflammation. However, for the best treatment options that can be used for long term results, one should consult the Rheumatologist.


Is arthritis seen only in elderly people?

No, this is a common misbelief. Arthritis can affect any age group and even children. But it is most seen in the age group of 30-50 years and osteoarthritis majorly affects older people.
