Treating arthritis with Hyaluronic Acid Injection
Dr Tai Cheh Chin

Dr Tai Cheh Chin, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Orthopaedic Specialist Centre (OSC) says “Hyaluronic acid injection is effective in relieving pain and eliminating swelling. It needs no operation, causing no bleeding and little pain. It helps the knee joint regain the normal ability to walk and it is the best choice of treatment apart from surgery.”


Key Takeaways:

  • One of the most common forms of arthritis is osteoarthritis (OA), normally occuring at knee, elbow, and other joints
  • Injection at the knee alleviates pain for mild to moderate OA
  • After injection of Hyaluronic Acid, OA patients’ joints have new supply of lubricant and their function is restored
  • Hyaluronic Acid is a local treatment, therefore it has little or no systemic side-effects
  • Among Dr Tai’s 1500 patients who have received knee injection, about 70% of them had their pain completely relieved
