Viscosupplementation

We also specialise in Viscosupplementation, a targeted approach to alleviate the symptoms of knee osteoarthritis.

Bones have cartilage that helps them move smoothly. This cartilage has fluid containing hyaluronic acid, which acts as a cushion and lubricant in the joint. In osteoarthritis, cartilage deteriorates, causing abnormal bone contact and reduced hyaluronic acid levels. This results in stiffness, pain, and swelling.

Viscosupplementation is based on the idea that adding hyaluronic acid can relieve these symptoms. By replenishing the synovial fluid with artificial hyaluronate, we restore lubrication, improve viscoelasticity, and potentially exert anti-inflammatory and chondroprotective effects on the joint.

Viscosupplementation may delay the need for arthroplasty and provide long-lasting relief.
