Viscosupplementation knee joint therapy is a medical procedure during which lubricating fluid is injected into a knee joint. As its name implies, viscosupplementation artificially supplements the joint fluid's natural viscosity. By injecting a man-made hyaluronan into the knee, doctors hope to temporarily lubricate the knee joint, thereby improving function and perhaps even slowing the degeneration process.

It is a painless procedure and no admission is required.

During viscosupplementation a small amount of hyaluronic acid,  2 mL- 8 ml, is injected directly into knee joint capsule by orthopaedician with proper anitiseptic and aseptic precautions. No anesthesia is required and patient goes home walking within 10 minutes.

The Science- Why is it necessary?

A healthy knee joint has up to 4 mL of joint fluid within the joint capsule.. Hyaluronic acid is a key component of the joint fluid. It gives the joint fluid its viscous, slippery quality, which enables the bones' cartilage-covered surfaces to glide against each other, thereby reducing joint friction and adds cushion to protect joints during impact (e.g. weight-bearing activity)

Joints affected by osteoarthritis typically have a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid in their joint fluid than healthy joints, and therefore less protection against joint friction and impact.

Opinion of the specialist: 

Sharing his experience of more than 100 such knee visscosupplementation injection patients.

--Dr Kalpit Patel, MS Ortho, FRCS

Which patients benefit from this therapy?

Typical candidates for viscosupplementation are people with knee osteoarthritis who have failed to improve with other non-surgical treatments.
