Fluoroscopic Guided Hyalgan Joint Injections
Our joints are bathed in synovial fluid, a clear, gel-like substance that provides lubrication. Within the synovial fluid is hyaluronic acid, which deteriorates in those with Osteoarthritis (OA). The synthetic hyaluronic acid is injected into the patient’s’ joints to reduce pain. About 85% percent of patients get 80+ percent better and this simple procedure buys time (up to 5+ years), and side effects are rare when done with fluoroscopy. Over 50+ million injections performed.
