SBJH is a frontrunner in Arthritis care having conducted 1000+ camps and educational programes on Arthritis.
Arthritis refers to inflammation of the joint. It's a disease that affects millions of people across the world, and has a high prevalence in India. Once arthritis patients suffered agonizing pain throughout their life, but today joint replacement surgery allows them to lead normal lives. Highly skilled surgeons at SBJH routinely perform these surgeries.
There are over hundred types of arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout and infective. In arthritis caused by trauma, an injury to the joint results in pain and inflammation, which can lead to restricted mobility and joint deformity. 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.
Several different surgical interventions can be used to provide relief to patients and help them lead normal lives. Arthritis is a life changing illness making simple daily activities painful and difficult. 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
