Viscosupplemetation (gel) injections for knee arthritis

The injection contains a gel-like mixture made from a substance called hyaluronan. Hyaluronan is a natural substance found in the body and is present in very high amounts in joints. The body’s own hyaluronan acts like a lubricant and a shock absorber in the joint and is needed for the joint to work properly. In knees osteoarthritis, the cartilage protecting the ends of the bones gradually deteriorates, joint fluid loses its shock-absorbing qualities and bones may begin to rub against each other and cause pain. This injection made of hyaluronan lubricates and cushions your knee and can provide up to six months of osteoarthritis knee pain relief.
