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 highly successful in alleviating pain associated with osteoarthritis and is covered by most major medical
insurance providers, including Medicare. Supartz was the first type of natural knee injection approved by the FDA in 2001.
One of the reasons our knee protocol is so highly successful is our rehabilitation strategy. We combine lite knee exercise using state of the art rehab equipment and fit each patient with a cutting edge unloading knee brace
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 imaging technology while administering any of our minimally invasive injection procedures. 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.
