I am not a happy customer. I have osteoarthritis in my left knee and the Synvisc treatment was useless and expensive! My health insurance does not cover this treatment and it cost me $950 for NOTHING!

I got the Synvisc one shot in both knees on July 8 but after 4 days started having swelling and pain. The swelling in left knee spred to the whole leg and the pain became excruciating.
