Synovectomy is a procedure recommended to provide relief from a condition in which the synovial membrane or the joint lining becomes inflamed and irritated. The synovial membrane encloses each joint and also secretes a lubricating fluid that allows different joint motions such as rolling, folding and stretching. When the synovium becomes inflamed or irritated, it increases fluid production, resulting in warmth, tenderness, and swelling in and around the joint.
