Out of pocket cost for synvisc injection for hip?

Not FDA approved

Intramuscular_injection
the reason the cost is so high is that these products are not FDA approved for use in the hip. Since they are used off label , Insurance will not cover the cost of the material but usually will cover the procedure cost.

how many times can i get Synvisc injections in my knees. I have had them injected 3 times, 6 months apart?

No limit

Knee_pain
There is no limit to the number of injections. What usually stops the injections is that either the person feels better without them or the injections no longer help.

Is it worthwhile to delay knee replacement surgery to have a synvisc injection?

Depends

Knee_vanguard_complete
Synvisc is effective for early to moderate osteoarthritis. 80% report decreased knee pain. 2% risk of synovitis reaction, that resembles infection. Advanced osteoarthritis has never even been adequately studied with product, but results are expected to be less predictable. Knee replacement results are good to excellent for 95% of patients lasting 20-30 years. Replace if advanced.

I did a Synvisc injection in the knee called Ostenil plus. After this terrible pain since 8weeks. Any idea why?

See details

Elbow_pain
Ostenil is a foreign protein so a localized allergic reaction to it could cause pain and swelling of the knee. Your question should be addressed to the doctor who did the injection.

Dr. Clarke Holmes answered:

Had Orthovisc last round and worked great. Doc said to switch to Synvisc and Just had first injection and feel burning and sharp pain 3 days after. Should I go back to Orthovisc? What's wrong?

Reaction to synvisc

Synvisc has the highest adverse effect rate. One in particular is a pseudosepsis reaction which mimics an infection. If one product works well, then there's no reason to switch- go back to Orthovisc.

Dr. Ronald Krauser answered:

Second round of Synvisc One injections produced a prolonged inflammatory reaction. Is it likely that Orthovisc will produce a similar reaction?

No

Bursitis
Synvisc contains a foreign protein (rooster comb) while Orthovisc does not. Orthovisc will not cause the same reaction.
