Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis - Treatment Overview
What to think about
Surgery may be used in a very small number of children with JIA who have severe joint deformity, loss of movement, or pain.
Some children with JIA have no appetite, so malnutrition becomes a medical concern. If your child has little appetite for food, see a registered dietitian for help.
