Abstract

Rheumatoid arthritis is a common and disabling condition which can be effectively managed through a multidisciplinary approach. A review of the etiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and treatment is presented, followed by a discussion focused on the disease presentation and management in the foot and ankle. Conservative care options, perioperative considerations and surgical treatment options for rheumatoid deformity in the foot and ankle are discussed.
