The first series of shots worked and after six months I went back for a second series of shots. The second series of shots were not successful and I am now looking at knee surgery. I have an appointment with a surgeon to check my options.

Have osteoarthritis in my right knee. Doctor suggested Orthvisc injections. I had 3 injections. Each a week apart. The pain did get better. Never totally gone. Now 2/12 months later, the pain has returned.
