Gastroenterologist, Surgical 's  Response
The outcome of treatment depends upon 2 factors, the presence of underlying systemic disease and the severity of damage to the joints. Whatever damage or degeneration has occured will not be reversed by medications. But one can surely achieve symptomatic relief and better quality of life from medications and physiotherapy.
