Arthritis

We routinely treat multiple types of arthritis of the hand and foot, from the inflammatory types, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, to osteoarthritis and posttraumatic arthritis.  Treatments range from conservative, with anti-inflammatories, cortisone injections, splinting and therapy to surgical with joint replacement or fusion.  We have been performing arthroscopy of the foot and hand for treatment of arthritis since its inception.  We also currently pioneering the use of the mesenchymal  stem cells and platelet rich plasma for the treatment of foot and hand arthritis.  Below the list of some of the sites of arthritis treated at the Pittsburgh Foot and Hand Center.
