I am sorry that you have had to wait for so long to get an answer.

Unfortunately I did not get notified of your question being posted due to a technical glitch.

Coming to your question, Euflexxa is a good option for temporary pain relief in osteoarthritis of knee .The effect of injection may last anywhere from 3 months to 1 years.The average expected time of relief is 6 months.

Good thing is that the injection can be repeated multiple times without any side effects.

Feel free to ask any follow-up questions.

Thank you for your reply Dr. Sawhney. I'm just hoping to buy some time and put off the inevitable TKR. I know techniques have changed and the surgery is much easier on the patient than years ago, but replacement parts are never as good as the original! Even if I can achieve relief for a few years, I think it's worth the gamble. Again, thank you for your response. Still very nervous, but I'm going for it!
Orthopedist: Dr.Sawhney, Orthopedic Surgeon replied 2 years ago

You are correct in your thinking. You should try to delay the knee replacement as far as possible.

I hope Euflexxa will give u some time.

Best of luck for your injection. There is nothing to be nervous about. It is a minor procedure.

Feel free to ask if you have any more queries.
