We Restore Your Mobility Without Surgery

As time goes on, the cartilage cushion in your knees naturally wears away with use, causing the bones to rub against themselves which results in the pain you’re experiencing now.

Rather than replacing the damaged parts, our approach is to restore them with a hyaluronic gel injection, which is the building block of your body's natural cartilage.


Our Technology-Driven Process

For us, the most important aspect is ACCURACY.

We've invested millions of dollars in live-image technology called Fluoroscopy. This amazing technology allow us to see through your knee and place the gel right where it needs to be for maximum pain relief and comfort. For your procedure, we will:

  • Step 1: Numb Your Knee

  • Step 2: Take Live Imaging

  • Step 3: Perform the Injection

  • Step 4: You Walk Out


Michael Hana, MD |  Founder

“I'd love to tell you the story of why I founded The Joint Relief Institute!”

My name is Mike Hana. I’m board-certified in both anesthesiology and pain medicine, and I founded the Joint Relief Institute. If you’ll give me a moment, I’d like to tell you why I founded the institute.

Many people with knee pain think their only choice is to have a knee replacement, but according to this study, up to 1/3rd of knee surgeries are performed on people who don’t need them. That’s up to hundreds of thousands of unnecessary knee surgeries every year!

A knee replacement is not a minor surgical procedure and like all surgery, knee replacement comes with the risks of infection, heart attack, and stroke. After knee replacement surgery, even the luckiest patient faces a considerable period of bed rest, then a long road to their best-case scenario. And that best-case scenario is bad for many people…

The top reason for getting a knee replacement is chronic pain — my area of specialization — but this study shows many patients continue to have knee pain AFTER the surgery – pain that gets worse over time.

When you have a knee replacement, you close the door on your other options. The only thing you can do for pain after a knee replacement is take ever-increasing doses of mind-numbing and potentially addictive painkillers. And the longer you take painkillers, the greater the chances of bleeding ulcers and kidney failure.

All these studies and statistics are from respected and widely read medical journals, however, these aren’t statistics to me – they’re real people. I see these patients every day at the Joint Relief Institute – people who are in pain after knee replacement surgery. They’ve had one knee replaced, and they will do anything possible to avoid having surgery on the other knee.

So, you can imagine how frustrating it is to meet people who are in pain that they never should have experienced. I’m talking about pain that came because they didn’t get the right treatment, or they had a knee replacement they didn’t need.

That is why I founded the Joint Relief Institute in 2015. I wanted to make sure that as many people with knee pain as possible can undergo a simple, low-risk, low-cost procedure that could change their lives.

Knee injections are safe, effective, painless, and without any side effects, so you have nothing to lose and potentially everything to gain by trying injections first. If you’ve read our thousands of five-star reviews, you know that your life could change in a matter of minutes.

That being said, some people do need knee replacements. However, there is no way back after a knee replacement, so I’m asking you this: Please don’t decide that traumatic surgery is your only option without trying gel injections first.

Please come in to one of our three Chicagoland offices for a no obligation consultation. Our friendly and caring staff will answer any questions you have so you can make the most informed decision for your future.
