Are you experiencing any of these symptoms:
You may be suffering with Osteoarthritis or OA of the knee. OA can result from a low level of a lubricating substance (hyaluronan) in the synovial fluid that cushions your knee. Without enough hyaluronan, the bones of your knee begin to rub against each other, causing erosion, bone spurs, and pain.
Millions live with OA of the knee everyday:
More than 10 million Americans suffer from OA of the knee. Common risk factors for OA of the knee are genetics, being overweight, joint injury, overuse of the joint, and having other forms of arthritis.
Although nothing can cure OA, it can be treated effectively and we can help. Many people with OA of the knee live happy, healthy, and active lives.

Treatment for OA of the Knee:
At QuickMed Medical Clinic, we treat OA of the knee with SUPARTZ Therapy. SUPARTZ Therapy is a solution of highly purified sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronan or HA). Hyaluronan is a natural chemical found in your body and in joint tissues and synovial fluid that fills your joints. Your body’s own hyaluronan acts like a lubricant and shock absorber in synovial fluid of a healthy joint. OA of the knee negatively affects the quality of synovial fluid and therefore its ability to protect and lubricate your joint. By using SUPARTZ Therapy, we are able to supplement the poor quality HA in your painful knee with additional highly purified HA.
