What can you tell me about  supartz injections for knee pain?

Arthritis option: Your injectable options for knee arthritis include corticosteroids or hylaluronic acid. Most often for arthritis pain cortisone is the first line injectable option. If this is not an option for you or it has failed to relieve your pain, supartz is one of several brand name hyaluronic acid injectables that can be given every 6months and can be effective. It can take up to 6 weeks to take effect. ...Read more

Has anyone had or know about supartz injections for knee pain?  Does it work?

Yes it does work: Supartz is one specific type of visco-supplementation injection- designed to treat knee arthritis. It helps restore the nature viscosity of the synovial fluid within the knee joint, thereby reducing pain and improving knee function. I have seen benefits from supartz injections lasting from 6 months to over 4 years in my patients. ...Read more

Any new procedures for medial knee pain, without a total arthroplasty or the supartz injections? I have taken all injections.

MAKOplasty: I have performed over 560 makoplasty procedures and it is very very safe . It is superior to all other techniques for precise installation of partial knee replacements. When performed by an experienced makoplasty surgeon, it allows us to balance the tension of your ligaments within a millimeter and make the implants track centrally so they last decades. Mine all go home the same day, little pain. ...Read more

Unlikely: These are all similar treatments. If you failed one the others are unlikely to work. 4 injections of Hyalgan is an unusual number. Did you complete the recommended treatment? ...Read more
