Viscosupplementation for Arthritis of the Knee

Overview
This is an injection of medicine into the knee joint. It
lubricates your knee so the bones can glide
smoothly. It can help lessen the pain of arthritis.


Preparation
To begin, the doctor numbs your knee with local
anesthetic. Then, a needle is inserted through the
numbed area. The doctor guides the needle with a
video x-ray device called a "fluoroscope."


Injection
When the needle is inside the joint, the doctor
injects the medicine. It's a gel-like fluid. It
supplements your synovial fluid. That's the natural
fluid in your knee that lubricates the joint. The
medicine will help your joint move more smoothly.
And that should reduce your pain.


End of Procedure and Aftercare
When the injection is done, the needle is removed
and your knee is bandaged. You may not feel relief
for a few weeks. You may need to have more than
one injection over series of visits to get the full
benefit of the medicine.
