Viscosupplementation therapy is a procedure involving the injection of gel-like substances (hyaluronates) into a joint to supplement the viscous properties of synovial fluid. This procedure has been shown to be 86% successful in alleviating pain associated with osteoarthritis and is covered by most major medical insurance providers and Medicare.
The purpose of viscosupplementation, commonly misspelled as visco supplementation, is to relieve pain and restore function in the joints. It is most commonly used for osteoarthritis of the knee.

No Blind Injections!
We also utilize a breakthrough piece of medical equipment at our facility called fluoroscopy. This is a very important point because fluoroscopy allows our medical staff to look inside your joints, in real time, with the latest in imaging technology, while administering viscosupplementation treatment for arthritis. 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.
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.
