What is ORTHOVISC?
Orthovisc is made from pure animal free hyaluronic acid and is used to treat knee pains by injecting into area to offer six months pain relief. The process is referred to as viscosupplementation, where the knee joints are injected (supplemented) with healthy hyaluronic acid lubricant which means that patients can be mobile and independent to carry out their normal daily activities again. This process is much more effective then taking drugs orally to contain the pain.

Made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found inside the human body. It’s key properties are to keep the skin hydrated whilst adding plumpness. HA naturally breaks down in the body during metabolism and is then replaced. However as we gets older and our metabolism slows down, replacement of HA is less often which results in less hydrated skin and less volume in the skin.
Who should not use Orthovisc?
Individuals with skin infections or any skin related diseases, especially at the proposed site of injection.
What are the associated side effects with Orthovisc?
Muscle and back pain have been the most common side effects, as well as headaches and pain at the site of injection.
