Joint Aspiration treatment at Rheumatology Clinic DRHC Dubai


Joint aspiration, also known as arthrocentesis, is a procedure commonly performed in rheumatology to diagnose and treat various joint-related conditions. This minimally invasive procedure involves the removal of fluid from a joint using a needle and syringe. The fluid is then analyzed to determine the cause of joint pain, swelling, or inflammation.

At Dr. Rami Hamed Medical Center, Dubai, we have a team of highly skilled rheumatologists who specialize in joint aspiration. Our goal is to provide accurate diagnosis and effective treatment for joint-related conditions, helping our patients achieve better health and wellness.

Joint aspiration is commonly used to diagnose and treat the following conditions:

Inflammatory Arthritis: Joint aspiration can help determine if the joint inflammation is due to an autoimmune condition such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, or gout.

Infectious Arthritis: Joint aspiration can help identify the presence of bacteria or other infectious agents in the joint fluid, which is crucial for diagnosing and treating infectious arthritis.

Crystal Arthritis: Joint aspiration can help identify the presence of crystals in the joint fluid, which is characteristic of crystal arthritis such as gout or pseudogout.

Joint Effusion: Joint aspiration can help relieve joint pain and swelling caused by excess fluid accumulation in the joint (joint effusion).

Synovial Cysts: Joint aspiration can help drain synovial cysts, which are fluid-filled sacs that can develop in the joint.

The joint aspiration procedure is performed under local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. After the procedure, the joint fluid is sent to the laboratory for analysis, which typically includes examination under a microscope, culture for bacteria, and testing for crystals.

Based on the results of the joint fluid analysis, our rheumatologist can develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to the patient's specific condition. Treatment options may include medications, physical therapy, lifestyle modifications, and other interventions aimed at relieving pain, reducing inflammation, and improving joint function.

If you are experiencing joint pain, swelling, or inflammation, it is important to see a rheumatologist for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and take the first step towards better joint health and wellness.
