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 in to 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...

Dr Reza is FANTASTIC. Staff is friendly and very accommodating. I was in such pain. He diagnosed the issue (Bursitis) and clearly understood everything about it from A-Z. So efficient and understanding, not to mention making the procedure painless. I barely slept a hour the night before, saw Dr. Reza at 5pm and was feeling a million times better by 7pm. It's been 36 hours and I went from practically a frozen shoulder in pulsating pain to gaining back 70% of my movement range and most importantly "NO PAIN". just stiffness which is the normal symptoms as kindly explained to me by Dr. Reza. Everything is as promised, I am fully confident that I will be back to 100% range of motion within 3 days. I'm still gonna take it easy and slowly stretch my shoulder back to full strength. Without his service, I would probably be feeling like I was hit by a truck laying in bed miserable. Thank you very much Dr. Reza for helping my aging old bones. Cheers!

I can’t say enough about how intelligent Dr. Reza Dehdari is! I came to him to read my MRI for my ankle and he found a tear that multiple Doctors missed!!!! Simply incredible and I trust him throughly. Thank you so much!

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.

Dr. Reza Dehdari you are an amazing person. Thank you for going the extra mile on my shoulder after three Doctors told me I needed surgery. You took your time and explained everything about what to expect and to be patient while I heal. And that’s exactly what I did was heal, I can’t thank you enough for what you did for me.

Within the last 6 months I've suffered two minor injuries on the same knee which have restricted my mobility and caused me a lot of pain. I've seen an orthopedic dr.,, a pain management dr., and a sports medicine dr., all of which simply told me either surgery or learn to live with the pain! I've heard about PRP as an alternative with a high percentage of success. Thus, I made an appointment to see Dr. Dehdari, and was pleasantly surprised by his high level of knowledge, professionalism and thoroughness. Dr. Dehdari reviewed my MRI (previously ordered by the Orthopedist) explained the extent of my injuries, took X-Rays and an ultrasound to carefully determined if I was a good candidate for PRP. I can only say that I wish more doctors will give you the time, attention and care that Dr. Dehdari provides. Thank you Dr Dehdari, thank you for such high work ethics and patient care. Many thanks to his staff as they are as attentive and caring as Dr. Dehdari. It has been only 24 hrs since I received my PRP treatment and my pain levels have drastically gone down! I highly recommend Dr. Dehdari.
