Viscosupplementation for Arthritis of the Knee is a pain management procedure for treating knee pain. The procedure is an injection of medicine that lubricates the knee so the bones can glide smoothly again and help reduce the pain of arthritis. The medicine injected is a gel-like fluid that supplements the synovial fluid that naturally lubricates the knee joint. Some patients may need more than one injection over series of visits to get the full benefit of the procedure.
