Frequently Asked Questions
How Will I Know If I Am a Candidate?
We provide consultations to meet with our knee pain specialists and discuss your osteoarthritis or chronic knee pain. We also perform a detailed diagnostic screening in order to determine your candidacy for Hyalgan Therapy, Stem Cell Therapy, or one of our other knee pain treatment options.
Which Treatment or Therapy Program is Right For Me?
We’ll walk you through the different options and help you consider the program that will provide the most efficacy and pain relief for your particular knee pain symptoms. All of our programs are non-surgical and effective for knee pain relief that lasts. Our patients are finding healing and pain relief while avoiding painful and expensive knee replacement surgery.
Is This Better Than Knee Replacement Surgery?
We believe our treatment programs are a better alternative than knee replacement surgery for patients who are experiencing bone-on-bone grinding from osteoarthritis and/or chronic knee pain. Many of our patients have previously had surgery only to experience more knee pain post-operation. Knee replacement surgery can be painful and expensive, and can cause considerable down time for recovery. Our programs require little to no downtime, are safe and gentle, and have been proven to be effective for knee pain relief.
What Type of Insurance Covers These Treatments?
We work with most Commercial Insurance Plans.
Are There Any Contraindications for Knee Pain Treatment?
Hyalgan Gel Therapy should not be administered to patients who have a known hypersensitivity to hyaluronate preparations.
Intra-articular injections are contraindicated in cases of present infections or skin diseases in the area of the injection site to reduce the potential for developing septic arthritis.
