ORTHOVISC® High Molecular Weight Hyaluronan is an FDA-approved treatment made from ultra-pure hyaluronan, a naturally occurring lubricant found in healthy knee joints.
ORTHOVISC is indicated for the treatment of pain in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative nonpharmacologic therapy and simple analgesics, e.g. acetaminophen. ORTHOVISC may enhance the viscoelastic properties of synovial fluid to relieve pain and increase mobility.
Please refer to the package insert for a complete list of indications, contraindications, precautions and warnings.
