Abstract: 
Aim: To evaluate the clinical and functional outcomes of using intra-articular hyaluronic acid injection to treat early osteoarthritis of the knee joint.
Methods: The study included 25 patients with early osteoarthritis ranging from grade 0 to grade 2. Patients were evaluated before and after the procedure using the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and the Western Ontario McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) at 1 month and 6 month follow up, respectively.
The study group showed clinical improvement and excellent results, as evidenced by their VAS and WOMAC scores at 1 month and 6 month follow-up. In the study groups, no serious adverse effects were observed.
Conclusions: Our study determined that hyaluronic acid injection is a safe and effective method in treating early osteoarthritis.
