Expert Panel Publishes Guidelines for Medication Management in Rheumatic Disease Patients Having Joint Replacement

GOODMAN-Bio.jpg

In the first such collaboration of its kind, an expert panel of rheumatologists and orthopedic surgeons has developed guidelines for the management of anti-rheumatic medication in patients undergoing hip or knee replacement. The goal was to lower the risk of infection, which is linked to the use of the medications.
