See details: About 5% of the time there will be an allergic reaction to synvisc (hylan g-f 20) characterized by major swelling and pain in the knee within 24 hours. Aspiration and a cortisone injection will resolve the issue.

See details: I have trouble determining why Synvisc (hylan g-f 20) would even be used in a 31 year old. It is meant for moderate osteoarthritis and is beneficial in only about 70% of cases. See a rheumatologist.

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.
