What is the viscosupplmentation injections for Osteoarthritic knee pain?

We have found great success in treating aching knees due to Osteoarthritis (OA).  Especially good for patients who have been told they are not a candidate for Knee Replacement surgery, due to severity of their condition or other health risk factors.  We typically use a 5-shot regimen of a medicine that contains hyaluronic acid (usually "Supartz" for more info click here), spaced out at one visit per week for five weeks.  This material is very similar to the lubrication that a healthy knee joint contains, and often brings the much needed and wanted relief to the achy and painful knees due to OA.  Our physician will evaluate you and be able to tell you if you are a candidate for this treatment.
