Steroid and Viscoelastic Supplementation (e.g. Orthovisc, Euflexxa, Hyalgan, Synvisc)

Steroid and viscosupplementation injections are advanced treatment options for patients with arthritis and other sources of joint pain that have not responded well to exercise and oral medications.  These injections deliver relief directly to the source of the pain and are considered safe for nearly all patients.

Corticosteroid injections consist of cortisone and provide immediate anti-inflammatory relief directly to the affected joint.  Some injections may be administered with a local anesthetic to reduce any potential discomfort.  Results can vary significantly from a few days to a few months.

Viscosupplementation such as Orthovisc, Euflexxa and Hyalgan are made from hyaluronan, a substance naturally found in healthy joint fluid, to help cushion, protect and lubricate the knee for significant symptom relief.  These injections are administered on a weekly basis and can relieve pain for up to six months, although results may vary depending on the individual and the type of injection.
