As rheumatoid arthritis progresses, it can lead to deformities in large joints such as the knee and hip joints. In severe cases, surgery becomes one of the treatment options. They include tendon repair and artificial joint replacement surgery. Advancements have been made in the quality of artificial joints and surgery. In particular, robotic-assisted surgery has helped improve precision, bringing the margin of error down to 1mm and 1-degree angle. Other advantages include the fact that surgeons do not need to cut the cruciate ligaments during surgery. Find out the latest advances in the surgical treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
