No Synovial Fluid Replacement Therapy is not painful. Naturally, as with all injections, there is mild and short-lasting discomfort during the actual procedure, but aside from this Synovial Fluid Replacement Therapy is virtually painless. Often your physician will use a topical anaesthetic to reduce the discomfort.

If there is considerable inflammation around the joint, the physician may remove some of the excess fluid (exudate) prior to an injection.

Synovial Fluid Replacement Therapy can be an effective alternative for all stages of Osteoarthritis.
