New Therapies in Rheumatology

There are a number of New Therapies in Rheumatology which include:

(1) Gout

We have new treatments for gout to achieve control of the acute pain rapidly, and to maintain a pain-free life for the future. These include injection treatments and the use of allopurinol and alternative drugs to control the condition effectively.

(2) Osteoporosis

We are able to treat the condition effectively, increasing bone density and dramatically reducing fracture risk for the future using a range of medications. The most effective ones are the yearly injections of zoledronic acid (Aclasta), or six monthly subcutaneous injections of denosumab (Prolia). Both are very well tolerated and highly effective.

(3) Vitamin D deficiency

Injections of Vitamin D are available for patients with malabsorption or poor tolerance of oral medications.

(4) Osmic Acid Synovectomy of the knees

This is a very effective treatment for people who have persistent swelling and pain in the knees due to inflammatory arthritis. The procedure is carried out as a day case and does not involve any invasive surgery.
