Arthrosamid is an injection to help patients suffering from knee arthritis. It is a safe treatment option proven to reduce stiffness between the joints, enhancing mobility and improving quality of life.

How does it work?

At the time of your appointment, your consultant will inject the Arthrosamid into the inner joint cavity. The non-biodegradable hydrogel in the injection which contains 97.5% water and 2.5% cross-linked polyacrylamide backbone, will help to restore the viscosity within the synovial fluid. This assists with the lubrication and cushioning of your joint, creating a ‘cushion-like’ effect.

A single dose of Arthrosamid works, lasting up to 56 weeks.

Step 1

Your consultant will swab the area around the knee. They will then inject local anaesthetic to numb the area.

Step 2

Your consultant, under sterile conditions, will aspirate synovial fluid – thick liquid between joints to help reduce friction – from the knee. The consultant, with the help of ultrasound, will inject the arthrosamid in the knee.

Step 3

Once the injection is given, your consultant will remove the needle and plaster the injected site.
