Arthritis Care

SBJH is a frontrunner in Arthritis care having conducted 1000+ camps and educational programes on Arthritis.

Arthritis is a life changing illness making simple daily activities painful and difficult. There are over hundred types of arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout etc... An exact diagnosis of the type of arthritis is established by a detailed history and physical examination, x-rays, blood tests, and other investigations. However, the two major types of arthritis are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis.

Since there is no formal cure for most forms of Arthritis, SBJH provides our patients with clear and accurate information about Arthritis and tips for self-management and a comprehensive view on lifestyle changes that are required. We also observe an “Arthritis day” annually and campaign vigorously to spread the awareness of Arthritis. Our staff is equipped with special knowledge and skills requirement for the medical and surgical management of patients afflicted with Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes swelling in many joints particularly the hand and the feet joint. This is a very common disease in India particularly for women.

Rheumatoid Arthritis will cause permanent and physical deformities if it is not diagnosed early. Early diagnosis and aggressive treatment is the key to treating this debilitating disease and avoiding permanent damage to the joint

Soundarapandian Bone and Joint Hospital has been the pioneer in treating Rheumatoid Arthritis. We offer world-class options for people suffering with RA. We have a team of Doctors, Physiotherapists and dietician who will holistically look at the best options for every individual patient.

Whole Body Cryotherapy

    Whole Body Cryotherapy was introduced by Soundarapandian Bone and Joint Hospital for the first time in India.

    Whole Body Cryotherapy was extensively researched in Germany for its phenomenal benefits towards Rheumatoid Arthritis.

    3 minutes twice a day of WBC a day for a month shows dramatic long-term benefits for patients suffering from RA.

    • It improves the immune system considerably which in turn slows down the inflammation.
    • Pain reduction is reduced by blockage of pain receptors
    • Huge improvement in general mobility and joint function
    • Medicine intake specifically of steroids is reduced

    Advanced Surgeries:

    The later stages of RA result in permanent physical deformities in many joints. SB&JH have over 20 years of experience in advanced Joint Replacement Surgeries. In the very late stages of RA we perform

    • Hip Joint Replacement
    • Knee Joint Replacement
    • Shoulder Joint Replacement
    • Ankle Joint Replacement

    • Elbow Joint Replacement

    These advanced Surgeries dramatically improve the quality of life of suffering patients.

    Special Injections:

    We adopt a unique and special injection to prevent the pain and progression of Arthritis. We have judicially avoided injecting steroids into the Joints.

    Diet and Medication.

    Our lifestyle plays a huge factor in the progression of the disease. In SB&JH we approach the disease holistically with an Orthopedic Doctor, Rheumatologist, Physiotherapist and dietician.
