Synovectomy or Tenosynovectomy and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

Synovectomy or Tenosynovectomy and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

Synovectomy involves the surgical removal of the joint lining (synovium) or the covering of the tendon (tenosynovectomy), or both, to reduce joint inflammation. Synovectomy is typically not advised for children whose joints and bones are still growing. Recovery following synovectomy can be a long, painful process.
