Indicaciones de Revisión

No hay indicaciones o exámenes de revisión disponibles para el diagnóstico temprano de osteoartritis. Por lo general, los pacientes son diagnosticados cuando comienzan a notar síntomas y éstos los llevan a buscar atención por parte de su profesional en el cuidado de la salud.
