Rheumatoid Arthritis

If you are diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, physical therapy and surgical procedures such as surgical cleaning, joint replacement or joint fusion may be required as part of your treatment. Jefferson's Arthritis Program is dedicated to providing comprehensive, private and personalized care for all types of arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis.

Our rheumatologists work in conjunction with orthopedic surgeons and may refer you for leading-edge procedures to repair the deformities and return you to enhanced functionality.

Physical therapy may also be a part of your treatment plan, and Jefferson is continually ranked as among the best in the nation in Rehabilitation by U.S.News & World Report.
