Arthroplasty 2018 – You can Also replace Knuckles

Although hip and knee are the most common joint replacements for rheumatoid arthritis, doctors can also replace shouldersankles and even the finger joints.
In fact, Knuckle replacements were pioneered in the 1950’s, as hands are one of the first areas affected by RA, causing pain, loss of mobility and deformity”.
Replacing a damaged joint with an artificial one (usually silicone based) will reduce pain and restore some mobility. Authors of a recent study from the university of Michigan recommend contacting a hand surgeon earlier rather later to discuss options.
