Are you a Candidate?
OsteoArthritis of the Knee is a debilitating disease that affects millions of people in the United States. This disease often prevents people from enjoying normal, everyday activities because of the pain and immobility. If you find yourself answering yes to these questions, you may be a candidate for our program:
- Are your knees very stiff in the morning?
- Do your knees hurt when going up or down stairs?
- Do you frequently take ibuprofen or aspirin for your knee pain?
- Do the activities you enjoy cause pain around your knees?
- Have you been told that you will need knee replacement surgery?
- Is standing up or kneeling down difficult for you?
Does this Knee Pain Program work?
This program has been researched and supported by published research studies that established that pain relief protocols were comparable to a total knee replacement, at a fraction of the cost with little-to-no recovery time.

Prevent surgery with Hyaluronic Acid Injections
The FDA has officially approved hyaluronic acid for use in the treatment of arthritis of the knee. Hyaluronic acid bonds with joint fluid naturally present in your knee to create a lubricating and cushioning layer in the knee. It reduces pain, inflammation, and swelling of the joint, allowing you to do the everyday activities you enjoy!
Adverse side effects are rare, and the best results occur when hyaluronic acid injections are combined with rehab. Accuracy is increased and little pain occurs when the injections are performed under an advanced live motion X-ray unit (fluoroscopy).

Osteoarthritis & Chronic Joint Pain
As we age, the general wear and tear of daily life often results in chronic joint pain or osteoarthritis.
Traditionally, patients are told they only have two choices: live on pain medication to mask the pain or undergo risky joint replacement surgery.
PWIC's OA Knee program offers a better alternative – that can help restore the joint, re-nourish and rebuild new cartilage, increase viscosity and mobility, reduce swelling and reduce or eliminate the pain – all without surgery.
The results for many of PWIC's OA Knee Program patients, including many who were told their only option was joint replacement surgery, have been life changing.
Our FDA approved treatments are covered by Medicare and most major insurances. This makes it possible for a wide range of patients to try our innovative, non-surgical Program and avoid knee replacement surgery.
PWIC and Dr. Efros' treatments provide more substantial pain relief, better mobility, and better long term results, so our patients can get back to the activities they love to do; new options for patients to help them harness their body’s natural healing potential.
Another major benefit our non-surgical approach offers is little-to-no downtime.
