Previously delivered as three separate injections, Synvisc® now comes as a single injection called Synvisc-one®. This treatment is suitable for patients with mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the knee, and has also shown considerable promise in early stage osteoarthritis of the hip.
Synvisc-one® is a gel-based injection composed of hyaluronan (also called hyaluronic acid) that is found naturally within the joints of the body. When injected into the joint Synvisc-one® assists with lubrication and shock absorption.
Synvisc-one® is a prescription medication so talk to your doctor about whether this may be a suitable treatment option. For more information click here.
