Behcet's Disease

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Behcet's Disease Treatment in Atlanta GABehcet's disease is a rare disorder that causes inflammation in blood vessels throughout the body. The inflammation of Behcet's disease causes numerous symptoms that can occur all over a person's body. Many of the symptoms may initially seem unrelated making it difficult to diagnose and treat Behcet's disease at first. Signs and symptoms of the disease vary from person to person, but they may include mouth sores, eye inflammation, genital sores, joint swelling, vascular inflammation, skin rashes, and skin lesions. It is thought that Behcet's disease is an autoimmune disease, and both genetic and environmental factors contribute to Behcet's.

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we offer treatments to reduce the signs and symptoms of Behcet's disease and to prevent serious complications. Joint swelling and pain often affect the knees in those suffering from Behcet's disease. The ankles, elbows, wrists, and other smaller joints may also be affected.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
