Hyaluronic Acid to treat arthritis in dialysis patients

I have been diagnosed with Grade 2 Osteoarthritis. This is causing me a lot of pain in my left knee. I was put on NSAIDS for a while but the pain keeps coming back. The Orthopedician has now suggested a shot of Hyaluronic Acid in my left knee. With regard to this:
1. Are you aware of any side effects of Hyaluronic acid in dialysis patients (both the orthopedician and my nephrologist say they are not aware of any but they are not sure)?
2. Do I need to do a heparin-free dialysis before or after taking the shot? (my nephrologist suggested that I do but the ortho feels it is not required)
Thanks in advance for your help!
