We now offer ultrasound-guided hyaluronic acid injections (Ostenil Plus) to treat patients with osteoarthritis.
What are hyaluronic acid injections?
Hyaluronic acid injections help to treat osteoarthritis, such as of the knee, ankle, hip and thumb; other degenerative joint conditions; and joint-related sport injuries.
Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body’s joints. However, it thins with osteoarthritis, and joints become stiff and painful.
The injections are gel-like substances containing the acid. They help to lubricate joints and restore function, treating pain rather than just masking it.
When are hyaluronic acid injections a good option?
They are a safe, non-surgical option when other treatments, such as exercise, painkillers, and cortisone injections have not improved symptoms, or when surgery is not suitable.

What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid injections at Oryon?
How are hyaluronic acid injections given?
Patients have an ultrasound of the affected area and an injection containing the hyaluronic acid is inserted into the thick liquid between joints (synovial fluid).
For at least one to two days afterwards, you should avoid intense weight-bearing activities such as jogging, and high-impact sports.
How much will this treatment cost?
Our treatments will cost £475 per region and £685 for two regions. Multiple regions can be injected at once at a discounted rate.
Do I need a referral?
You need a referral from a qualified healthcare professional to receive this treatment.
If you don’t have one, we offer a scan referral service, where patients can get a trusted referral within one working day, from one of our partner healthcare professionals.
How quickly can I get an appointment?
We are committed to providing an efficient and quality service. Our consultant-led ultrasound clinic operates 5 days a week.
