What is it?

Hyaluronic Acid (HA), also referred to as hyaluronan, is a naturally occurring lubricant in normal joint fluid.

HA products like ORTHOVISC® High Molecular Weight Hyaluronan are used as viscosupplements, which may help to supplement the synovial fluid. ORTHOVISC® Hyaluronan is a non-avian sourced hyaluronic acid injection therapy which can provide pain relief with 3 or 4 injections.*

ORTHOVISC® is indicated for the treatment of pain in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative non-pharmacologic therapy and simple analgesics (e.g. acetaminophen).*

If conservative non-pharmacologic treatments and medications no longer seem to help, consider discussing hyaluronic acid injections with your doctor. Ask your doctor if ORTHOVISC® is right for you.
