Omaha Visco-supplementation for Knee Arthritis Information by Dr. Darren R. Keiser MD
The material that is injected into the knee is comprised of “cartilage building blocks.”
This treatment helps to lubricate the knee and allows it to bend more smoothly. The Visco-supplementation treatment can help reduce the pain of arthritis.
Viscosupplementation can be helpful for people whose arthritis has not responded to basic treatments. It is most effective if the arthritis is in its early stages (mild to moderate). Some patients may feel pain at the injection site, and occasionally the injections result in increased swelling. It may take several weeks to notice an improvement after viscosupplementation. Not all patients will have relief of pain.
