There is no cure for "wear-and-tear" arthritis the knee known as osteoarthritis (OA). However, there are different therapeutic options to help alleviate pain, improve range of motion, and patient’s quality of life. 

Viscosupplementation is FDA approved procedure and will be considered in patients who other therapeutic modalities in management of knee Osteoarthritis have failed. In this procedure hyaluronate, a lubricating, gel-like substance is injected into the knees allowing bones to move over each other more easily, and serve as shock absorbant.

Based upon the type of viscosupplement used, a patient may require three to five injections for optimal response.​
