Radiation synovectomy? A Chick’s message to you all:
Hi, I am being referred for radiation synovectomy on my knee after an unsuccessful surgical synovectomy. Has anyone any experience of this procedure? Thank You! xx
Have you had this procedure? Experiences or advice to share with this member? Thank you for taking the time to help answer her message. I’m attaching a link on what a synovectomy is for those of you that may not be familiar with this type of procedure for RA. I hope this finds you well. (((pain-free internet hugs))) Here is the provided link with information on synovectomy from WebMD:
What our members have said so far:
Patricia – wonder if it is good for feet and ankles. I need something so bad.
Cheryl – I just had synovectomy done on my wrist. Hoping for a good outcome. Have not heard of radiation synovectomy
