WHAT IS ARTHRITIS TREATMENT?
Arthritis is inflammation of the joints that affects the musculoskeletal system of the body. There are different types of arthritis that can affect people in many different ways; patients may suffer from stiffness, discomfort, and pain. It can also make people feel weak and lead to an inactive lifestyle. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and affects elderly patients. At Atlanta Medical Institute, our skilled team of physicians offers a number of arthritis treatment methods, focusing on knees, in order to alleviate pain and discomfort for our Atlanta, GA patients. Our team is led by Dr. Elbridge Bills and Dr. Jeff Semel, who are highly experienced in effectively combating the effects of arthritis on the knees.
