First of all, DO NOT let some of these reviews scare you off from this treatment. What you get on here are the 1% who are having issues and a few here and there who looked this up prior to treatment. I did and was quite nervous about it until I spoke to 2 friends who had the shot and they assured me it wasn't bad at all. I had the shot today and although I don't know if it will work for ...

I received an injection of Sinvisc One two and a half weeks ago. I went into the orthopedist office with some knee pain, was told I needed a total knee replacement. Since this injection my knee is swollen, I have trouble walking more than a few yards and have a great deal more pain in my knee. I wish I had not had this injection.

I am a 55 year old female and have knee pain due to "bone on bone" on interior side of right knee. 6 weeks ago I had the Synvisc-one injection and still can't bend my knee. As soon as my doctor injected the Synvisc into my knee it swelled up and I had difficulty walking out of his office. I have had horrible pain, muscle spasms, and swelling since. Now he wants me to go to PT to ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have osteoarthritis in both knees and was told I'm a good candidate for partial knee replacements for both knees. I tried cortizone shots and that helped for 3 weeks then the pain was back. I had the Synvisc One shots in December and have not experienced any relief. In fact I think my knees are worse. The shots didn't hurt at all - much the same as the cortizone shots. The doctor sa ...

Comment:
I had my first shot of Synvisc One Nov.2014. My whole leg is swollen and the pain is excruciating. I have to sleep on a recliner because if I turn just a little, the pain gets even worse. The company says "only a 2% have side effects" But it is only for immediate reaction like an allergy. I can only walk for a few minutes. It is even worse than before the shot.
