For certain diseases, drugs cannot entirely cure the problems, but rather simply slow the the progress of the disease. Rheumatoid arthritis is an example of this scenario. Furthermore, drugs often come with unwelcoming side effects. Luckily, with research and medical advances, surgery is becoming more and more an option for individuals to consider for rheumatoid. In this article “When is Surgery Right for Rheumatoid Arthritis” from WebMD, it is suggested that if there are structural damage to the joint or surrounding tissue, surgery may be the better option over drugs. For example, if the knee is so painful and stiff to hinder you or your loved one from performing routine tasks, and drug treatments seem to be ineffective, then a knee replacement surgery might be a viable option. Same can be said for the options for hip replacement.
