What is Synvisc-One?
Synvisc-One is an injection that supplements the fluid in your knee in order to facilitate lubrication and cushion the joint. This treatment can provide up to six months of knee pain relief for individuals who suffer from osteoarthritis. The injection contains a gel-like mixture made from a substance called Hyaluronan that comes from chicken combs. Hyaluronan is also a natural substance in the body that acts like a lubricant and shock absorber in the joint.
