How SYNVISC Work?
SYNVISC is made of hylan, which are similar to the natural material found in healthy synovial fluid. During therapy your damaged synovial fluid is removed and replaced with SYNVISC. This process is called viscosupplementation. The injected SYNVISC absorbs shocks and lubricates – while reducing sensitivity to pain and helping to restore the healthy mobility of the joint.
Your doctor will examine you, remove any damaged synovial fluid, and then inject SYNVISC into your knee, once a week for 3 consecutive weeks. It is very important that you have each injection at the right time fo SYNVISC to work properly.
“How effective is SYNVISC?”
Extenbsive clinical studies have shown SYNVISC to be highly effective. In studies in the knee, over 75% of patients felt better or much better after their first course of SYNVISC.
