Comment:
I had arthriscopic surgery 11 weeks ago and was still experiencing pain and having trouble walking. I just had my first injection yesterday and can truly say I have felt relief. Kind of nerveous after reading others reviews about the pain from the second and third injections but if it helps me walk pain free it is well worth it. So far so good

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.
