Our new FDA approved, opioid free therapy may delay or replace the need for expensive and painful joint replacement surgery. Our board-certified physicians replace the diminished fluid in your knee joint with an FDA approved visco gel, that provides the cushion and shock absorption your knees need. Our office uses state of the art digital imaging to accurately guide the viscogel directly into the knee joint so it can get to work fast. No guessing, no clumsy pinching or prodding around your aching knees. Our doctors get the medication accurately into the joint every single time. The majority of our patients feel better within a short time span after the therapy we provide.
In a normal healthy knee, the two surfaces of the joint is separated by a thick layer of fluid and each side has a protective layer of cartilage. As the knee loses this fluid over time, the two surfaces of the knee begin to rub together and wear away the cartilage. As arthritis worsens over time, the bones can begin to break down over time and create sharp edges called bone spurs.
In advanced stages of arthritis, the cartilage can completely wear away causing the bones to directly rub against each other, causing significant pain and swelling.
Our comprehensive arthritis pain relief program is an important stage to try before surgery. Many of our patients have tried and failed to see pain relief from steroid injections, over the counter medication and creams. Our FDA-approved orthopedic therapy is a series of image guided knee joint injections of a lubricating “viscogel” that acts as a cushion and shock absorber. These injections restore the knee to the natural levels of fluid found within normal healthy knees.
Clinical studies show that physicians who administer gel injections without image guidance actually miss the joint area completely 30% of the time. Our board-certified physicians use an advanced fluoroscopic digital guidance system to guarantee we get the gel in the right spot every single time.
When combined with a knee brace that supports and aligns the joint during movement, many of our patients notice an immediate relief of pain. Many of our patients return to the activity levels and independence that they had before the arthritis symptoms.
Our comprehensive therapy program helps our patients dramatically their chances of needing a surgery and decreasing the impact arthritis pain is having on their life.
