Put the lubrication back in those knees

 

Once considered an alternative treatment, a significant body of research demonstrates the effectiveness of hyaluronan injections for osteoarthritis of the knee. Hyaluronan works as a lubricant and shock absorber that occurs naturally and abundantly in young, healthy joints. In osteoarthritic joints, however, it is smaller in size and less concentrated.

Using ultrasound-guided injections to ensure accuracy and efficacy, we can inject hyaluronan back into osteoarthritic knees. Research shows these treatments improving pain in knee osteoarthritis by 40% to 50%. These injections provide important joint protection as well – reducing the grade and extent of cartilage damage.
