Our non-surgical approach

1/3rd of knee surgeries are performed on people who don’t need it.*

Some people do need knee surgery, and we encourage those patients to undergo the procedure. However, before you commit to knee replacement surgery, it’s in your best interest to explore alternative non-surgical options.

Knee replacement surgery has all the risks that come with any major surgery, and knee replacements come with no guarantees of restored movement or less pain. In fact, many patients report more pain after knee surgery, which continues indefinitely.**

Additionally, the AAHKS says that it can take up to 3 months to return to most activities and 6 months, to a year, before your knee is as strong and resilient as it can be. Read Healthline Article >

Every day, our doctors and physician assistants speak with people who regret not understanding all the facts before they got a knee replacement. Unfortunately, once you have a metal ball in place of a natural knee joint, your pain management options are severely limited. That is why surgery should be a last resort.

The good news is that there is a safe and effective way of reviving worn-down knees without any side effects. This is done through our unique procedure to rejuvenate your joint. Gel injections may be common, but can be ineffective if done improperly — that’s why we’ve developed a precise method using the fluoroscopic technique (live-imaging) to guarantee a successful outcome. The best part is that you get instant relief without a recovery process.

Our Proven Process

Step 1:

Call to speak with a new patient specialist, who will determine your eligibility and schedule an appointment at one of our 3 convenient Chicagoland locations.

Step 2:

We’ll welcome you into the office and introduce you to our friendly clinical staff. A provider will ask you a few questions to verify your eligibility, answer any questions you have, and then take a digital image of your joint to determine the cause of your pain.

Next, they’ll explain the procedure – if you decide to continue, a provider will capture a real time x-ray of your joint called Fluoroscopy. This real time imagery allows the provider to place the gel in the exact spot it’s needed – 100% of the time!

There are very few physical limitations after the procedure – go do almost anything you want afterwards, pain free!

Step 3:

Depending on your treatment plan, you’ll visit 3-5 more times to complete your gel series. This is also a great time for us to check in and see how you’re doing. When you “graduate” and receive your final treatment, our family celebrates with you, and we’ll schedule a future follow up to make sure you’re still living pain-free!

100% accurate placement.

Maybe you know someone who has had a gel injection and it “didn’t work.” Unfortunately, we hear this story all the time, which is why it’s important to understand the reason this happens and how it can easily be avoided.

Without the right equipment, it’s impossible to visually confirm proper placement of the injection. The gel could land in the tissues around the joint and never reach the joint to coat the raw areas.

At the Joint Relief Institute, we place the gel correctly 100% of the time by using a live-imaging technique called Fluoroscopy. Using this advanced technology, the provider can see through your knee to ensure the gel is always placed exactly where it needs to be.
