Viscosupplement injections, also known as ‘rooster comb’ injections, are specific injections used to help treat the symptoms caused by arthritis or cartilage softening within the knee joint. These act to decrease discomfort from the arthritis conditions in many people. Although they have not been shown to rebuild cartilage or necessarily change the structural integrity of the joint, they may help reduce the symptoms associated with arthritis within the knee joint. At this time they are indicated only for the knee joint. Dr. Vizzi, with his specialty training in knee conditions, can help you decide if viscosupplement injections (rooster comb injections) are right for you.
