What is Arthrosamid®?

Introducing Arthrosamid®, a novel knee osteoarthritis treatment, now available through the expert care of Mr. Parag Jaiswal. Surpassing traditional methods like steroid injections or knee replacement surgery, Arthrosamid® features a unique non-biodegradable hydrogel technology. Composed of 97.5% water and 2.5% cross-linked polyacrylamide, it provides effective cushioning and pain relief in the knee with just one injection. Choose Arthrosamid® for safe, sustained pain management in osteoarthritis treatment.


How does it work?

Experience relief with Arthrosamid®, now offered by Mr. Parag Jaiswal, as a state-of-the-art treatment for knee osteoarthritis. This intra-articular polyacrylamide hydrogel injection (iPAAG) is designed to replenish the synovial fluid in your knee, enhancing joint lubrication and cushioning. Upon injection, Arthrosamid® seamlessly integrates with the synovium of your joint capsule, providing a cushioning effect and obstructing the inflammation pathways responsible for knee pain. 

What’s involved with Arthrosamid treatment?

Arthrosamid® is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure for knee osteoarthritis. This treatment is efficiently conducted under local anesthesia and guided by ultrasound. With Arthrosamid injected directly into the joint, there’s no need for a hospital stay, making it a convenient option for those seeking relief from knee osteoarthritis.

What are the benefits of Arthrosamid treatment?

Arthrosamid® is a straightforward outpatient procedure for knee osteoarthritis, allowing you to return home the same day.

Arthrosamid® is not only simple but also safe. Its biocompatibility ensures seamless integration with knee tissues. Backed by over two decades of research and development, and the successful use of approximately 1,000,000 hydrogel units for various body applications, its safety profile is well-established.

The efficacy of Arthrosamid® is sustained. Clinical trials have shown patients experiencing a notable reduction in pain by the fourth week post-injection, with this improvement maintained over 156 weeks. Ongoing trials of Arthrosamid® continue to monitor patient outcomes for up to 5 years. 

Does Arthrosamid have any side effects?

Before receiving an Arthrosamid® injection for knee osteoarthritis, a local anesthetic is applied to numb the area around your knee, which may cause a slight stinging sensation. Importantly, no serious adverse events associated with Arthrosamid® have been reported in studies. The most common side effects observed are mild to moderate pain or joint swelling at the injection site, typically transient in nature.
