Lyme Disease (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
There is no surgical treatment for Lyme disease.
In severe cases of chronic Lyme arthritis, removal of the lining of the affected joints (synovectomy) may be needed if the arthritis has not responded to antibiotics.
Currently there is no other treatment for Lyme disease.
If you have problems with memory, concentration, or thinking as a result of late Lyme disease, you may benefit from therapy that helps you regain or improve your mental abilities (cognitive rehabilitation).
