Supartz is approved for treatment of knee osteoarthritis. Supartz is a non- surgical, non-pharmacologic therapy, the treatment can improve mobility and relieve pain for knee osteoarthritis. Supartz is ideal for patients who failed conservative treatments, including physical therapy and exercise. Supartz contains highly purified sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid.)
Supartz is a viscosupplement injected directly into the knee joint in order to reduce pain, improve mobility and reduce stiffness. It supplements the hyaluronic acid naturally found in the synovial fluid of the healthy knee. Supartz has to be injected by your doctor. Supartz is injected once a week, for 5 weeks. Some patients may already have a good response after 3 weeks. The injection may work as a lubricant and shock absorber in the affected joint.
