Not much: Not a lot. Studies have suggested they are equally effective. Synvisc (hylan g-f 20) is available as a single shot while orthovisc requires 3 weekly injections. Synvisc (hylan g-f 20) is more viscous.

Synvisc (hylan g-f 20): It depends if you have insurance. If so then once approved, it is usually a copay amount. If you do not have insurance it can cost about $700 in the us. You can order online from a canadian pharmacy for about half the price as a backup option.

not really: They are differences in the fluids such as viscosity but the benefits are comparable. Synvisc (hylan g-f 20) is available as a single injection white orthovisc requires 3 separate injections.

Synvisc (hylan g-f 20): Synvisc (hylan g-f 20) is an animal product, made out of the rooster's comb (red object on the rooster's head). One of the side effects is allergic reaction, especially if one is allergic to chicken products (eggs, etc). This is fairy uncommon, but it can result in a painful, swollen joint. Other potential side effects are infection from the injection itself and local skin/soft tissue reaction.
