In brief: Very rare

Supartz (hyaluronic acid) injections are a type of "visco-supplementation" treatment for knee arthritis.
Side effects are exceeding rare, but any injection into the knee joint could introduce an infection or cause an inflammatory reaction to occur. I have used supartz (hyaluronic acid) in my practice for nearly 14 years on a regular basis without any documented side effects.
