Suffering doesn’t build character—it just hurts. There is no reward for waiting until it becomes unbearable. But there is a treatment that may help: ZILRETTA – a single injection that can provide major knee pain relief for 3 months.

It’s time you said “Enough!”

If you suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee, you know what it means to deal with pain—it is serious. At some point, you realize you face it every day. Ordinary activities can be truly painful, such as:

  • If you are among the millions of people who suffer needlessly from chronic osteoarthritis knee pain, ZILRETTA may be the injectable, non-opioid pain treatment you’ve been hoping for.
  • ZILRETTA is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for osteoarthritis knee pain that uses extended-release microsphere technology, studied in multiple clinical trials on hundreds of patients.
