Durolane injection for osteoarthritis
Durolane is a preparation of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance present in the joint fluid that assists in lubrication. It allows smooth movement of the cartilage-covered articulating surfaces of the joint. In osteoarthritis, joint fluid becomes thinner and does not provide enough protection. Durolane is a gel preparation that is injected into the joint to replenish joint fluid and stimulate the production of new hyaluronic acid. This provides symptomatic relief and can delay the need for surgery.
