Hyaluronic acid injections for knee osteoarthritis are available at Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group. Our Board-certified doctors, physical therapists, and medical assistants take pride in offering the latest treatments, both non-surgical and surgical, for orthopaedic conditions of all kinds. We can evaluate your condition and determine if these intra-articular knee injections, also referred to as viscosupplementation, may be able to help relieve your arthritic pain and enhance your range of motion.
Hyaluronic acid, which is a cartilage protein, is administered as a series of injections in the knee, aimed at enhancing the elasticity, or viscosity, of the synovial fluid that lubricates the knee joint. Because knee arthritis causes the cartilage of the knee joint to deteriorate, along with the joint’s naturally occurring levels of hyaluronic acid, injections may help lubricate and protect the joint. At Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group, we use only the leading brands of viscosupplementation, including Hyalgan, Supartz, Orthovisc, Euflexxa, Synvisc, and Synvisc One.
In addition to knee arthritis therapy in the form of hyaluronic acid injections, our orthopaedics clinic offers the following non-surgical treatments:
- Physical therapy
- Pharmacologic therapy*
- Platelet rich plasma therapy
- Corticosteroid injections
- And more
