Osteoarthritis of the knee is a painful condition that can make it difficult to engage in routine activities. Dr. Ghaziaskar in Irvine, has used Supartz therapy to help a number of patients with osteoarthritis who have not responded to more traditional forms of treatment. Supartz injections are approved by the FDA and can help reduce pain within a few visits.
Over time, osteoarthritis can cause the cartilage and fluid within the knee to degenerate, eventually allowing the bones to rub together. With Supartz therapy, a medical professional will inject highly-purified sodium hyaluronate–a substance found naturally in synovial fluid–into the knee to lubricate and cushion the joint.
Supartz injections are typically administered once a week over a five-week period, with each injection taking approximately 15 minutes. While sports and heavy lifting are discouraged for the first 48 hours following the injection, you can engage in normal activities right after your treatment.
