Knee Arthritis

Proudly serving the Tempe, Sun Lakes and Mesa communities.

Our new FDA approved, opioid free therapy may delay or replace the need for expensive and painful joint replacement surgery. Our board-certified physicians replace the diminished fluid in your knee joint with an FDA approved visco gel, that provides the cushion and shock absorption your knees need. Our office uses state of the art digital imaging to accurately guide the viscogel directly into the knee joint so it can get to work fast. No guessing, no clumsy pinching or prodding around your aching knees. Our doctors get the medication accurately into the joint every single time. The majority of our patients feel better within a short time span after the therapy we provide.  

What Is Osteoarthritis of the knee

In a normal healthy knee, the two surfaces of the joint is separated by a thick layer of fluid and each side has a protective layer of cartilage. As the knee loses this fluid over time, the two surfaces of the knee begin to rub together and wear away the cartilage. As arthritis worsens over time, the bones can begin to break down over time and create sharp edges called bone spurs.  

In advanced stages of arthritis, the cartilage can completely wear away causing the bones to directly rub against each other, causing significant pain and swelling.
