Rheumatoid Arthritis & Surgical Treatment in Indore – Dr. Ashish Badika

The majority of patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) never require surgery if they are diagnosed at an early stage of disease and they are taking regular treatment under Rheumatologist care. However, some patients may require surgery in form of Joint replacements, arthrodesis, and synovectomy.

Joint Replacement

Patients can be advised for joint replacements for major joints like the shoulders, hips, or knees and minor joints like the fingers and toes. Joint replacement surgery is removing all or part of a damaged joint and replacing it with a synthetic replacement.

Arthrodesis

The injured joint is removed during arthrodesis, and the adjacent bones are bonded together. The technique severely restricts movement while increasing stability and relieving pain in the afflicted joints.

Arthrodesis is typically performed to treat arthritic ankles, toes, wrists, or finger joints. It can also be used to stabilise uncomfortable spine joints (called spinal fusion). Arthrodesis may necessitate the use of bone grafts extracted from the patient’s own pelvis.

Synovectomy

The surgeon removes the inflammatory synovial tissue around the joint during this operation. The surgeon seeks to alleviate or eradicate the patient’s symptoms by eliminating the afflicted tissue. But since every tissue can’t be removed from the affected area, inflammation, oedema, and discomfort may reoccur.

A patient must consult his doctor/surgeon to get the right advice and suggestions on which operation if required, is right for him/her.

Autoimmune diseases often affect different systems in the body, which may mean the need to consult with different medical professionals.

If you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, ask your healthcare provider if you may need to see a specialist or therapist. If your autoimmune disease is associated with skin symptoms, your doctor may refer you to a dermatologist trained to treat skin conditions.

When your healthcare provider suspects or diagnoses an autoimmune disease affecting a specific system in your body, they may refer you to a specialist who has been trained in the treatment of autoimmune diseases. Because autoimmune diseases can affect almost any system in the body, most doctors have treated patients with these conditions from time to time.

Autoimmune conditions treated by an allergist or immunologist include primary immune deficiencies and auto-inflammatory syndromes.

People with rheumatoid arthritis should see a rheumatologist, a doctor trained in treating arthritis and related diseases. Rheumatologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal diseases and autoimmune diseases (rheumatism).

You must visit your doctor who can advise you for the specialist you may need to go for further diagnosis and treatment

Autoimmune disorders generally fall into two categories: organ-specific means that one organ is affected, while non-specific disorders can affect multiple organs or body systems. There are more than 100 different autoimmune diseases, the severity of which ranges from mild, moderate to severe, and some can lead to disability, depending on which body system is being attacked and to what extent.

It has been seen that women are more susceptible than men. This can occur more frequently in people whose genes make them more susceptible to autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune disease occurs when a person’s immune system mistakenly attacks the tissues of their own body.

Autoimmune disorders are caused by dysfunctional immune responses directed against body tissues, resulting in chronic and multisystem. They are sometimes called rheumatic diseases, connective tissue disorders, or vascular collagen disorders. Common ones include lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, vasculitis, and many more.

The chronic nature of these diseases imposes a significant burden on the use of health resources, resulting in high economic costs and a poor quality of life compared to the general population.

Autoimmune disease is used to describe a condition in which the body’s immune system which should protect the body from viruses, bacteria, and other invaders is considered to be related to the occurrence or continuation of the disease.

One must not wait for getting confirmation of autoimmune disease with themselves and must visit their doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

If you have an autoimmune disease or its symptoms, you must be worried about the treatments available.

Treatment for Autoimmune Diseases depends on the condition of the patient, but most autoimmune diseases are treated with drugs that suppress or otherwise alter the immune system.

Standard treatment aims to reduce the signs and symptoms of the disease and limit the autoimmune process. Treatment of autoimmune diseases controls overactive immune responses and keeps the involved organ intact as much as possible.

Autoimmune diseases are often treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), steroids, and immunosuppressants.

Biologics are drugs that are genetically engineered to interact with the body’s immune response and reduce the damaging effects of rheumatologic diseases. Biological therapy targets those parts of the immune system that cause inflammation, leading to diseases such as autoimmune diseases. The treatments available for autoimmune diseases can help relieve symptoms, prevent further disease progression, and prevent complications. By working with your doctor and paying attention to how you respond to each drug, you can find the best disease-altering treatment for you.

Autoimmune Diseases can Affect Vital Organs – Dr. Ashish Badika

There are more than 100 different types of autoimmune diseases. These diseases can affect most of the vital organs of the body.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

The immune system targets the joints in rheumatoid arthritis. The joints become red, heated, aching, and stiff as a result of this onslaught. Unlike osteoarthritis, which typically affects people as they get older, it can begin around the age of 30 or even earlier in some cases.

Psoriasis/psoriatic arthritis

Skin cells regularly proliferate and then die when they are no longer required. Psoriasis causes abnormally rapid proliferation of skin cells. Extra cells accumulate and produce inflammatory red patches on the skin, which are frequently accompanied by silver-white plaque scales. Up to 30% of persons with psoriasis have joint oedema, stiffness, and pain.

Some other autoimmune diseases are :

  • Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE),
  • inflammatory bowel disease,
  • Addison’s disease,
  • Graves’ disease,
  • Sjögren’s syndrome,
  • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis,
  • Vasculitis and many more

Reach out to your doctor to know more about these diseases and know, how you can prevent yourself from these diseases.
