If you have osteoarthritis, you need the care and expertise of a specialized group of physicians who work together as a team to provide advanced care, including the option of arthroscopy, a minimally invasive treatment procedure.
To diagnose osteoarthritis, your physician will take a complete medical history and perform a physical exam. X-rays or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) may be recommended to show the extent of joint deterioration and help find the cause of your pain. Laboratory tests such as blood work and an analysis of your joint fluid also may be needed.
