Rheumatic diseases often cause inflammation, pain and loss of motion in the joints, which over time can cause significant damage, preventing the patient from performing basic tasks.

Factors that should be considered while selecting rheumatology hospitals in India:

•    Does the hospital have a JCI or NABH accreditation? NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare Providers) is an Indian council board, and JCI (Joint Commission International) is an international patient management accreditation designed for assessing the quality of the healthcare facilities available in the area that come under their council. Patients should look for these certificates while seeking medical treatment abroad to determine the quality of the treatment which will be delivered to them.

•    What is the reputation of the hospital? Patients can also read the reviews given to the hospital by its previous patient for assessing the standard of services provided there.

•    Who is the best rheumatologist in the hospital? While selecting a hospital, patients also check the reviews and qualification of the rheumatologist who is working at that hospital, cause, in the end, he/she is going to perform the treatment.

3. What are the latest technologies used for the treatment of rheumatology conditions?

Molecular Imaging

Several anatomical imaging techniques have been used for decades now for diagnosing and monitoring RA. However, despite the advancement, these imaging techniques fail to produce cellular, & physiological changes that occur during the initial stages of RA. Currently, researches are developing molecular imaging technology, that offers a non-invasive method for diagnosing, monitoring and guiding the treatment. It is said to produce even the most functional changes that occur inside the bones during RA.

Disease-Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drugs (DMARDs)

DMARDs are one of the most common medicines used for providing relief to the symptoms of rheumatic conditions, which cause joint and muscle pain. Advancement in the medical world is significantly helping doctors find new drugs and formula that can also prevent the pain from coming back with regular use of the drug.

7.    How are some of the best rheumatologists in India trained?

Rheumatologists in India have to attend four years of theoretical and practical training from a government-affiliated medical college and then undergo an extended training program in rheumatology after graduating. Later, they can gain additional specialization in the field for treating more advanced or specific types of rheumatic conditions.

8.    What is the cost of different rheumatology procedures?

Gout, Lupus, Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, Scleroderma, Osteoarthritis (OA), and Sjogren Syndrome etc. are some of the most common types of rheumatology procedures. All of these conditions apart from OA require medical management. The cost of therapies used for their treatment can range from USD 100-500 per month

If these fail to work and the cases are more complicated or severe than second-line therapy, or newer immunomodulation therapy will be prescribed to the patient that can range between USD 500-1200 per month

Promising therapies like stem cell therapy which ranges from USD 5500 to 45000 can also be used for the treatment. Booster therapy if advised will cost around USD 2500-8000 per session. Usually, initial therapy suffices but in resistant cases booster therapy for 1-3 years (one session every year may provide desired results)

Osteoarthritis will initially require medical treatment, but severe cases can find relief from joint replacement.

Patients will have to undergo detailed evaluation including CBC, LKFT, urine analysis, complement levels, ANA, dsDNA, lesion biopsy, diagnostic scans etc. and based on the results further treatment plan will be decided.
