How is Arthrosamid® administered?

Before treatment with Arthrosamid®, you will have a local anaesthetic to numb the area around your knee. You should also be given antibiotics ahead of this to protect you from any
potential risk of infection.

Your knee is cleaned prior to treatment. Arthrosamid® is then singularly injected into your knee’s synovial cavity. This is
sometimes performed with the help of ultrasound. The needle is then removed and a plaster is placed over the injection site.

Arthrosamid® distributes within the synovial fluid and begins to stick to and mesh with the synovial tissue.

Before treatment with Arthrosamid®, you will have a local anaesthetic to numb the area around your knee. You should also be given antibiotics ahead of this to protect you from any
potential risk of infection.
