Leg Injury

I've been told my knee is wearing out.  I'm not ready for a knee replacement.  Are there any options for me?

I've tried therapy and medicine like Advil and Tylenol, but it's pretty achy most of the time and tennis is less fun.

Have you tried viscosupplementation?

Is that the series of lubricating gel injections?

Yes. Patients who have been told to start thinking about a knee replacement have about a 50% chance of getting 6 months of improvement from the first series.
