Hyaluronic Acid Injection Therapy for Knee pain

Hyaluronic Acid Injection Therapy for Knee pain

We now offer all our injections in North London (Finchley). See our contact us page for details. 


The hyaluronic acid injections are becoming more and more popular as an alternative to steroids treatments for knee osteoarthritis and other problems. It is very safe and can be very effective in treating joint osteoarthritis in patients who have already been treated with pain relievers and other treatments that did not work well. Our experts use hyaluronic acid injections for many years and we are happy to bring this treatment as another injection for pain relief.

What to expect:

Our clinicians will scan your affected area in order to identify the painful structure and guide the needle to the correct place.


We offer the two most popular brands of hyaluronic acid injections. 

Ostenil Plus: The cost of a Ostenil plus injection in our clinic in Finchley is £265. This includes a telephone assessment prior to your appointment, a full assessment in clinic, an US scan for an accurate diagnosis and the injection. 

Durolane: The cost of Durolane Hyaluronic Acid injection is £330 and it is a single injection. The price includes the pre-assessment and the whole consultation with the injection.

If you prefer to have the injection at home, please contact us for an accurate quote. We have high quality portable scanners and we are able to offer the injection at the convenience of your home


Will it hurt?

A small discomfort from the needle is expected. However, our clinicians will make the process as smooth as possible. Sometime a local anaesthetic might be used and the area will feel pain free and numb for several hours. Once the anaesthetic wears off, the pain will return. We recommend you take some painkillers the first night. The following morning the steroid will kick in and the maximum improvement is achieved quickly within the first three weeks.

What should I do next?

We recommend that you avoid driving for the first few hours after the injection. You should make arrangements to rest the are the first 48hrs and avoid high impact for the first two weeks. The clinicians will guide you when to return to full activities.

Will I need more injections?

The hyaluronic acid injections are known to have long lasting effects. They do not have the risks of steroid injections and there is some evidence that they may even slow down the joint degeneration. They can be used safely from people that do not want to have a steroid injection or cannot have steroids. They are usually preferred from active people that would like to maintain their high activity levels. We will discuss the options you have and adapt to your needs.

Are there any side effects?

All medication can potentially have side effects. The hyaluronic acid injections are considered very safe. The most common short-term side effects are minor pain at the injection site and minor buildup of joint fluid. These get better within a few days.

All of the injections are always US guided to ensure accurate and safe practice.
