Have you been searching for the best physician for arthritis? You’re in luck. This article provides the helpful tips you need to find the perfect doctor for you!

Depending on the type, location, and severity of your arthritis, you may benefit from a variety of different treatments. A qualified physician will know how to address your symptoms properly and recommend the right approach to managing your joint pain and to preventing further degeneration.

But before you can begin treatments and get on the road toward pain relief, you have to find the right doctor. The good news is that the best physician for arthritis is located right around the corner! In fact, there are multiple joint specialists practicing at each local branch of Rothman Institute, so you won’t have to go far to get the best care available.

What to Expect from the Best Physician for Arthritis

A qualified orthopaedic doctor will be able to:

  • Assess your symptoms and gauge range of motion in the affected joint/s

  • Rule out muscular disorders and nervous system conditions

  • Check for signs of arthritis-related disease, such as Lyme, Gout, Fibromyalgia, etc.

  • Effectively diagnose you after an initial physical examination and testing

  • Offer and oversee a comprehensive treatment plan for your arthritis

  • Perform joint repair or replacement procedures, if necessary

Look no Further...

There’s a reason why, for decades, Rothman Institute has been the most trusted source for orthopaedic care. In fact, there are quite a few reasons!

Let’s start with the fact that the physicians of Rothman Institute’s joint replacement program perform more than 11,000 surgeries each year! With specialists focusing on knees, hips, shoulders and more, local patients suffering from arthritis have access to the experienced physicians they deserve.

If you’re looking for the best physician for arthritis, you’ll be able to choose from dozens of highly qualified doctors at Rothman Institute, where physicians have extensive residency training in addition to advanced speciality training through Fellowships.

Rothman Institute is known for excellence in research, a commitment to community partnerships, innovation in new methodologies, and orthopaedic leadership in teaching and in practice.

What to Do Next

There are many effective, conservative methods of treatment for arthritis in mild to moderate stages. However, when the wear and tear of severe arthritis has disabled a joint so significantly that it is not able to function as it should, even the best physician for arthritis will not be able to help you achieve pain relief with conservative methods.

In that case, your doctor may recommend a surgical procedure, such as total joint replacement. If you suspect you may be a good candidate for a joint replacement surgery, please visit us here or contact us at 1-800-321-9999 to set up an appointment with one of our joint specialists.

  • Rothman Institute Cartilage Restoration Center of Excellence

    This is a center where patients can go to have their disabled joint biological resurfaced, realigned, and stabilized without having the joint replaced by artificial materials such as metal and plastic. It is well known that the outcomes of patients under the age of 50 undergoing artificial joint replacement are not as good as we would like. Therefore we feel the future of Orthopaedics is to try to restore a joint back to its original anatomy by realignment, ligament reconstruction, and cartilage restoration.
