In brief: Frequency

Supartz is a series of 5 injections.
Synvisc (hylan g-f 20) one is a single injection. The theory of treatment is the same.

In brief: Number of injections

The primary difference is that supartz is given over a course of 3-5 injections (usually 5) and synvisc-one is a single injection.
They both deliver a form of hyaluronic acid and act as a sort of joint lubricant.
