Hyaluronic Acid for Osteoarthritis Treatment

At Advanced Healing Institute, we understand how difficult it is to live with osteoarthritis. Therefore, we continue to stay at the forefront of arthritis treatment and help patients find relief with newer and more effective remedies. Beyond regenerative medicine and cortisone injections, we also offer osteoarthritis treatment using hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid injections, also called viscosupplements, are FDA approved for treating arthritis of the knee. However, patients have also discovered improvement using hyaluronic acid therapy on the hip, ankle and other joints.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body. It is found in the important lubricating fluid (synovial fluid) that helps our bones and joints glide against each other. Unfortunately, if you have arthritis, hyaluronic acid breaks down and the joint loses its shock absorption and lubrication. This causes patients to feel pain and stiffness in the joint. After hyaluronic acid injections, they can regain better lubrication and move more freely. Most of all, patients can obtain long-lasting pain relief.

Who is a Candidate for Hyaluronic Acid Injections?

Hyaluronic acid injections are often recommended as a treatment option for osteoarthritis sufferers who are no longer able to control their pain with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. It may also be a solution for patients who have maximized their use of corticosteroids or those that want longer-lasting results than a steroid injection. It should be noted, however, that the full benefits of hyaluronic acid may take up to five weeks to attain, but peak improvement typically lasts for a longer amount of time.

Beyond its capabilities to provide lubrication and shock absorption to the affected joint, research also suggests that hyaluronic acid supplementation can hinder some of the naturally occurring compounds that promote inflammation. In addition, recent studies have found that hyaluronic acid injections may be able to stimulate the body’s own production of HA, which can work to preserve cartilage and slow the progression of osteoarthritis.

If you are suffering from persistent arthritis pain despite other treatment modalities, we invite you to learn more about hyaluronic acid injections. Contact Advanced Healing Institute today to schedule your consult. We are committed to finding effective pain relief for each patient that walks through our doors.

Dr. Reza is a genius. My knee has been bothering me for YEARS since I tore my meniscus playing football. Achy, bothersome, with occasionally a limp. I went into to get PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and it was everything I thought it would be and then some. The whole procedure took less than an hour, very little to no pain and in less than 24 hours my knee felt brand new. If you are looking for a quality Doctor who offers PRP -- go here! The rates are very on point. He is literally THOUSANDS of dollars less than some other clinics and believe me he does such an amazing job, he could charge 10x's and it would still be worth it. Don't sit there suffering, get up and get help. I am actually thinking of getting my other knee done and its not really necessary. Lol.. 10 STARS...

This place is amazing. I took my aunt to Dr. Dehdari since she was in so much pain to her left knee due to Arthritis Dr. Dehdari explained to us about PRP and after the PRP procedure she has no more pain. When we went there she was using a cane but right now she doesn't use it at all. PRP works miracle.

Had the PRP procedure and I have to say no pain at all, going on 6 weeks, if you decide to have the PRP listen to Dr. Dehdari's instructions thoroughly and do the physical therapy, it works and I am so pleased and it's getting better and better as days go on, Dr. Reza Dehdari is the best and very emphatic in explaining all your questions soothing away your doubts, and he checks up on you to make sure all is well, after the PRP procedure. Very trustworthy PRP procedure and his assistant Sandy is also the sweetest caring person you will ever meet. I'm a satisfied customer and patient.

Quite simple experience. Showed up to appointment, I was taken right away to room for PRP injection. Doctor was friendly and willing to try to help me, while many other doctors just told me they did not know what I had and told me they couldn't help my pain and sent me away. Nurse was quite nice as well. Will return for second set of injections for more pain reduction.
