Rheumatologists can prescribe drugs that can not only drive rheumatoid arthritis into remission but can also achieve some repair to the joints damaged by inflammation, according to Dr. Marc D. Cohen.  "In rheumatology, remission can never mean no disease. It just means not very much disease," said Dr. Cohen, emeritus professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn., and acting chief and professor of medicine at National Jewish Medical and Research Center in Denver.
