The specialist musculoskeletal private practice now offers arthrosamid(R) injections for patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis. Once injected, arthrosamid, which is based on a unique non-biodegradable hydrogel technology, becomes an integral component of the soft synovial tissue in the joint capsule – and so is anticipated to last significantly longer than the previous generation of therapies.

The Keep Clinic’s new treatment provides long-lasting cushioning of the inner capsular tissue, reducing pain and stiffness for sustained relief while enhancing the function of OA-affected knees. Patients should expect to experience improved mobility and pain relief within days – a viable alternative to current treatments that are not long-lasting or involve knee replacement surgery.
Osteoarthritis is one of the most prevalent chronic health conditions in the world. In the UK, 20% of the population aged over 45 suffer from knee osteoarthritis. A progressive degenerative disease that wears away the cartilage – or connective tissue – in the knee joint, it is characterised by chronic pain and limited mobility. Repetitive stress injuries, heavy and rigorous work, ageing, weight gain, genetic defects, and other illnesses such as metabolic difficulties and rheumatoid arthritis are some of the most common causes of the disease.
After The Keep Clinic’s doctors inject the arthrosamid into the patient’s joint cavity, viscosity within the synovial fluid is restored – improving lubrication and cushioning of the joint. It then becomes integrated within the joint capsule, enabling long-term efficacy.
The Keep Clinic, which specialises in the management of bone, joint and muscle conditions, offers a combination of private consulting space, day-case surgery, access to rapid diagnostics, and in-house MRI imaging scans. The group provides effective, cutting-edge treatments in an outpatient setting, without the need for a general anaesthetic and an inpatient hospital stay. â??The clinic’s orthopaedic surgeons are able to undertake surgical interventions at other locations if it is deemed to be necessary.
“Frankly, this is one of the most exciting innovations in the field we have seen in a long time,” said a clinic spokesperson. “The science has been slow until now and patients underserved, but as part of the multidisciplinary MSK Doctors group, we are thrilled indeed to offer this new treatment to our patients.”
