Doctor insights on:
Orthovisc Vs Synvisc
Second round of synvisc one injections produced a prolonged inflammatory reaction. Is it likely that orthovisc will produce a similar reaction?
If I had 4 injections of Hyalgan and it didn't help the knee pain would Synvisc, Eufflexa, Supartz or Orthovisc help the pain?
Similar: The two medicines are both considered viscosupplementation. They are injected for mild-moderate arthritis to improve the lubrication of the joint, more normally recreate the viscosity of knee joint fluid, and hydrate the remaining cartilage. Synvisc can be given in a one time dose or 3 doses separated by a week each. Hyalgan, euflexxa, orthovisc, supartz are given in multiple doses (3-5). ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Is an MRI of the knees required before Orthovisc? Is this type of injection unbearably painful? Can anaesthetics be used?
No: Viscosupplementation( orthovisc, synvisc, etc.)may require approval from your insurance carrier(usually documentation that other treatments such as NSAIDs,PT haven't helped) but generally not an MRI.Most injections are done in the office w/local anesthetics( lidocaine) and/ or ' cold spray' and are easily tolerated.best of luck! ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
