What is it & How it works?
Arthrosamid Injection is based on an innovative non-biodegradable technology and is made of 97.5% water and 2.5% cross linked polyacrylamide. When injected into the knee joint it cushions the joint line, reduces pain levels, and improves function following just one procedure. The hydrogel injection is non-biodegradable and therefore it delivers long-acting pain relief.
If you are suffering with moderate to severe osteoarthritis in the knee joint and do not prefer surgery or unable to undergo a surgical procedure, then the hydrogel injection may be the right choice for you. The hydrogel injection is not suitable for everyone and therefore our specialist MSK team will screen your health prior to the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions
Hydrogel injections are relatively safe procedures with minimal side effects. There is a small risk of allergy and infection or slight flare up of pain that can occur immediately or within few days following the procedure. Our Musculoskeletal Specialist team will perform a complete screening prior to your procedure to ensure safety.
There is no need for complete rest, however, we will advise you to reduce your activity level significantly for a week at the least to obtain the best results from the injection.
You should not drive immediately after the injection. Please organise a pick-up or arrange a taxi to return home.
Your appointment will be a “one stop shop” in which our Musculoskeletal Specialist will carry out a physical examination and ultrasound scanning to diagnose your problem. You will have plenty of opportunity to discuss your care with our specialist prior to proceeding with your injection.
Unlike other injectable treatments for osteoarthritis in the knee joint, results from the hydrogel injection are long acting and clinical trials have shown maintained results at 3 year follow-up period.
Hydrogel injection is a non-biodegradable technology and therefore it does not degrade. It is a “one-off” procedure that is aimed to give long-acting symptom relief.
Hydrogel injection is not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
