At The Atlantic Spine & Joint Institute, we have elected to utilize Hyalgan as our injectable of choice for our viscosupplementation therapy program. Hyalgan was the first type of natural knee injection approved by the FDA in 1996. Hyalgan consists of a mixture of sodium hyaluronate, which is found naturally and extracted from rooster combs.
No Blind Knee Injections!
We also utilize a breakthrough piece of medical equipment at our facility called fluoroscopy. This is a very important instrument because fluoroscopy allows our medical staff to look inside your knee joints, in real time, with the latest in imaging technology while administering any of our minimally invasive injection procedures, including knee cartilage injections, hyalgan knee injections, knee joint injections, and many others. This instrument helps to insure that the injected material is introduced to the exact point intended, and therefore provides the best possible outcome from each injection treatment.
That’s why if you have tried any type of pain reduction injection elsewhere without success, we may still be able to assist you, as your original injection may have never wound up in just the right place.
These treatments work; hear it straight from our patients!
What is Viscosupplementation Therapy?
Viscosupplementation therapy is a procedure involving the injection of gel-like substances (hyaluronates) into a joint, like the knee, to supplement the viscous properties of synovial fluid. This procedure has been shown to be 86% successful in alleviating knee pain associated with osteoarthritis and is covered by most major medical insurance providers and Medicare. We have completed a comprehensive training regimen to become trained and certified in viscosupplementation procedures.
Hyalgan injections are what we use for our patients’ knee pain injections because of the success rate we’ve seen time and time again. Injections for knee pain offer many of our patients relief from their debilitating pain and allow them to walk again, climb stairs, bend down, and resume normal activities, pain-free, that they once could not do. It is always a joy to hear their stories after they receive a hyalgan knee injection.
We Never Miss the Spot!
Don’t be fooled by other knee treatment injections that are often done blindly. So much time and money can be wasted, and so much pain can be endured by choosing other injections for knees that are not guided with fluoroscopy. We’ve successfully treated patients who have been there, done that, and who have been right where you are now.
The Atlantic Spine and Joint Institute has been able to help many residents in the Westmont, NJ and Wayne, PA areas with our knee pain injection treatment. Schedule a consultation with one of our knee pain injection specialists to see how our guided knee injections can help relieve your knee joint pain.
