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.
These treatments work; hear it straight from our patients!
Don’t be misled by any other knee joint pain treatment that does not use fluoroscopy. Going for knee examination tests and treatments will cost you more time, money, pain, and aggravation if the knee pain doctor misses the area that is causing you the most pain. With our cutting edge, real-time imaging technology, we can see your knee joint via x-ray so we never miss the spot. It’s as accurate, and it’s efficient.
The medical staff at The Atlantic Spine and Joint Institute has completed a comprehensive training regimen to become trained and certified in viscosupplementation procedures. Our expertly trained doctors and medical staff genuinely care about helping you and relieving your pain. That is what drives us to continue our viscosupplementation treatment protocol. Each time we hear a success story from one of our patients, who was right where you are right now, we feel extremely pleased and so happy for them.
