WHAT IS A SUPARTZ?
SUPARTZ (also called a viscosupplement) is a non-surgical, non-pharmacologic therapy for knee osteoarthritis. This therapy can help relieve your pain, improve your mobility, and get you back to your normal activities.
WHY CHOOSE SUPARTZ?
Multiple clinical studies showed that SUPARTZ consistently improved knee pain due to osteoarthritis. In a recent study, it reduced knee pain in patients by 50 percent from baseline. Pain relief can start after the first injection and last for up to six months.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This type of therapy treats knee osteoarthritis by providing temporary replacement for the diseased synovial fluid in your knee, which is an underlying cause of your pain. Unlike oral analgesics or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that affect all parts of your body, SUPARTZ specifically targets the osteoarthritis in your knee.
DOES INSURANCE COVER THIS TREATMENT?
SUPARTZ therapy is covered by Medicare and eligible for private plan coverage for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis. However, each insurance carrier decides which, if any, product it will cover. Before starting this therapy, we will call your insurance provider on your behalf. If the treatment is not covered by your insurance we have several payment options for your treatment.
