Joint Injection Drug Treatment (ORTHOVISC®/MONOVISC®)

Knee pain due to osteoarthritis can be debilitating and make everyday activities a challenge. Monovisc and Orthovisc are hyaluronic acid knee injections that can relieve pain and get you back on your feet. HealthQuest in Brooklyn is now offering these FDA-approved treatment knee joint injections for those patients suffering from knee pain which has failed the traditional conservative treatment strategies.

Osteoarthritis knee pain can affect both men and women and get progressively worse if not treated early on. If a patient has been properly diagnosed via a comprehensive exam, has undergone a course of physical therapy or cortisone injections, or is not a candidate for knee replacement surgery or invasive procedures, there is now a potential solution – viscosupplementation injections for knee pain. HealthQuest is recommending this treatment protocol that aids in restoring the natural joint fluid that cushions, lubricates and protects the joint.


Monovisc and Orthovisc Injections

– Get Long-lasting Relief from Knee Pain

Both Monovisc and Orthovisc are viscosupplements that provide knee pain relief, but differ in the way they are administered. While Monovisc is a single injection, Orthovisc is administered in a series of three injections. Though individual results may vary, some people feel pain relief after the first injection. These joint injections may relieve knee pain for up to 6 months.

Most of the medical professionals at HealthQuest are skilled in treating osteoarthritis, for more information on our talented medical staff, please see the profiles of Dr. Stiler, Dr. Wilen, Matt Valvo RPA and Amy Skinner RPA.

With the expertise of our skilled clinicians, who have been working with this viscosupplementation injection for over ten years, viable patients are selected for this in-office procedure. They will then work with the patient to determine the number of injections needed to provide relief from pain. After the treatment, patients may be advised to avoid strenuous activity for about 48 hours.

These knee pain injections provide pain relief and improve functionality without the need for additional medications. Studies continue to demonstrate the long-term pain-free effectiveness of this injection. It has been shown to delay joint replacement surgery.
