Arthritis M.D., your online source for arthritis information and treatment options, has a vast information network of medical doctors and research students who have put forth an immense effort to bring you the most current arthritis research and lend you their experience to help you learn more about this very complex disease.
A Message from physician and Chief Editor of Arthitis M.D., Dr. Grant Cooper:

"Arthritis is one of the most common medical complaints, affecting 40% of Americans and 50% of the population worldwide.  Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States.  In 1997 medical costs for arthritis in the United States alone exceeded 50 billion dollars.  As a physician I have always believed that each patient should have access to learn more about their particular condition, but have felt like this information was not readily available to the general public.   However, thanks to the power of modern technology, we can now help arthritis sufferers get instant information about their condition and hopefully allow them to gain some valuable insight about the various options for arthritis treatment and prevention.  It is my sincere hope that this information can be put to good use to help guide you on your quest for knowledge and open up the dialogue for more discussion between you and your doctor."
