Viscosupplementation Injection Q & A

What is Viscosupplementation?

Viscosupplementation is a procedure in which a thick fluid called hyaluronate is injected into the knee joint. There are no cures for osteoarthritis, so viscosupplementation will not cure osteoarthritis of the knee. However, it is thought that hyaluronate will improve the lubricating properties of the synovial fluid, reduce the pain from osteoarthritis of the knee, improve mobility, and provide a higher and more comfortable level of activity. Viscosupplementation in combination with physical therapy of the joint has been shown to provide very promising results with our patients.
