What is Synvisc-One?

Synvisc 16mg/2 mL Intra-articular Syringe
Drug Name: HYALURONATE INJECTION
Other Brand Names: Hyalgan, Synvisc
Uses: This medication is used to treat knee pain in patients with joint inflammation (osteoarthritis). It is usually used in patients who have not responded to other treatments such as acetaminophen, exercise, or physical therapy. Hyaluronate (also known as hyaluronan) is similar to a substance that occurs naturally in the joints. It may work by acting as a lubricant and shock absorber in the joint, helping the knee to move smoothly, thereby lessening pain.
