Though there is no cure for osteoarthritis, this new treatment launched by the London Cartilage Clinic can provide long-term relief from stiff or painful knees, without requiring major surgery or additional injections.

While there are several common treatments for osteoarthritis of the knees, such as hyaluronic acid (HA), and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), these treatments only provide temporary relief. The new Arthrosamid treatment from the London Cartilage Clinic uses a single injection and has the potential to become a permanently integrated part of the joint.
The new treatment has been tested in numerous studies over several decades and has been found to have very few side effects. The most commonly reported complaints were minor to moderate swelling, bruising, or pain at the injection site, all of which were temporary.
Arthrosamid injections work directly on the synovium, or connective tissue, of the joints by restoring viscosity, improving lubrication, and acting as a cushion between bones. In many clients, the hydrogel can become permanently integrated into the joint, providing long-term relief against stiffness and joint pain, and also improving mobility.
In studies, researchers performed regular evaluations of subjects and found that their pain was reduced for up to 2 years. While some clients have reported significantly reduced pain 5 years or more after their injection, studies so far have not extended past 2 years, so this evidence is only anecdotal.
The medical team at the London Cartilage Clinic works closely with each patient to ensure that they are receiving the most effective treatment available, suited to their individual needs. They offer a full range of services, both surgical and non-surgical, to protect, restore, and regenerate cartilage throughout the body.
One satisfied client said, “After a ski injury in 2003 and 5 failed knee surgeries, my chances of having a painless life were largely non-existent… I am not 100% painless, but my pain is probably reduced by about 80-85% in daily life and I am 5 years on from my injection. I can only recommend anyone with osteoarthritis of the knees to seek treatment with Arthrosamid.”
