Hi, Treatment depends on the cause of the synovitis. If it is an injury, then the principle of rest, ice, compression and elevation should be applied and this is usually effective. If the cause is arthritic, then anti-inflammatory medications are usually successful. In cases caused by more serious conditions, treatment of that condition is the primary concern, although arthroscopic surgery may be performed to remove the affected synovial tissue.. Consult Orthopedician for further advice....

Yes if you are taking medicine for 3 month n other supportive therapy like ice, knee cap, limb elevation for more than a month without significant benefit then INTRA ARTICULAR PRP THERAPY is good option. 1 to 4 sittings are required depending upon results. Most important it is without side effects.
