When exercise and simple pain medications no longer effectively manage knee pain caused by osteoarthritis (OA), Orthovisc may be the answer.
Orthovisc (High Molecular Weight Hyaluronan) is the only FDA-approved treatment made from ultra-pure hyaluronan, a naturally occurring lubricant found in healthy knee joints.
This knee pain injection is also the only treatment providing up to six months of pain relief that does not come from avian sources. This means that Orthovisc will not cause an allergic reaction if you suffer from avian allergies.
Talk to your doctor to see if Orthovisc might be a good choice for you.
