Question
Posted by: bob | 2011/08/08

osteothritis

I have been diagnosed with OA and the specialist said I must decide if I want to go for a scope to see what is there and a clean out.

I am not keen on invasive surgery at this point, but am in a lot of pain. Other persons I have spoken to inicate some relief from the surgery - but not everyone agrees

Wouls a MRI show whether a scope operation would be of any use ?

An artroscopy will be the best option to diagnose and treat the effected joint. A MRI scan can be useful to make a diagnosis.
