“Will I feel better straigh away?”
Some patients find that they enjoy relief from their symptoms straight after the first injection, but the full benefits are usually felt 3 to 5 weeks after the therapy course is completed.
“Will I have lasting relief from my symptoms?”
It should be remembered that SYNVISC is not a cure for OA, and cannot relieve symptoms permanently. Many patients obtain benefit for up to 12 months from a single course of SYNVISC, although the benefit gained varies from patient to patient. If your doctor thinks it is appropriate, you may safely have another course of SYNVISC if your symptoms return.
“Are there any side effects?”
To date over 5 million injection of SYNVISC have been given with no systemic (general) side effects. However, since SYNVISC is injected directly into the joint, some patients may feel localized discomfort such as minor pain and swelling in and around the knee. Such temporary effects may last for a short period, but will not necessarily stop SYNVISC from working.
Why choose Synvisc?
Studies have shown that High Molecular Weight properties of Synvisc help to restore the shock absorbing and cushioning abilities, therefore Synvisc can relieve your knee pain and improve functions for up to 12 months.
