Viscosupplementation

For patients suffering from the pain and limited mobility associated with osteoarthritis. (See below for more information)

Viscosupplementation

Viscosupplementation therapy is a procedure involving the injection of an FDA approved gel-like substance (hyaluronate) into the knee joint to supplement the lubrication properties of the joint. Hyaluronate is a naturally occurring substance found in the synovial fluid of our joints that is extracted from rooster combs. This procedure has been shown to be 86% successful in alleviating pain associated with osteoarthritis.

For accurate placement of the hyaluronate and ensure the best possible outcome for each injection, the procedure is administered using fluoroscopy imaging. Fluoroscopy allows the physician to visual the exact point of where the injected material is administered.

When combined with specialized physical therapy, viscosupplementation provides safe, painless, and proven effective treatment for resolving chronic joint pain.
