I have been diagnosed with a meniscus tear as well as osteoarthritis in my knee. Cortisone shots were effective but not long lasting. Dr. suggested SynVisc.

This is my 2nd injection on my left knee. My first was 3 years ago, and I've held off until now. Injection was simple, but the 2nd time they used an ultrasound to drain fluid and ensure the injection went to the right spot.

70 year old male with arthritic knees. Some cartilage left but not much. Have received the three shot injections 4 times previously over the last 10 years. This is the best experience so far. Immediate relief right off of the table. Had some discomfort with the injection due some swelling in the treated joint. Left knee will be done next week. Losing 50 lbs will make a big difference.

Comment:
Had Synvisc One injection in my right knee about a month ago. My right knee is still very painful. The injection itself was EXTREMELY painful. VA Clinic in Billings, MT I've heard less than stellar reviews of Synvisc One. Hope this finally starting working one of these months. Very Frustrating AND Painful.
