Question: Why are no two cases of arthritis or response to treatment exactly alike?
Answer: All persons are a reflection of their unique genetic makeup. There are well over a hundred types of arthritis. It is no surprise, therefore, that because of this wondrous individual variability, no patient responds exactly in the same way to similar types of arthritis, or similar medical treatments. (Answer provided by the late Dr. Raymond Federman, aka Dr. Bones, who passed away on September 2, 2003. The care of his patients even in retirement was always his joy.)
