  • Synvisc
Synvisc and Supartz are two different brands of viscosupplementation treatments used to treat osteoarthritis of the knee. Viscosupplementation is the administration of hyaluronic acid-based viscoelastic gel via injection to joints affected by osteoarthritis. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) restores lubrication and prevents further joint degradation by replenishing and increasing the production of the native hyaluronic acid in the body. This stimulates the synovial fluid, which is responsible for lubrication, mobility, and shock absorption of the joints. Osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis is a progressive, degenerative disease that attacks the joints, particularly in the knee. This is caused by the gradual breakdown of the joint cartilage due to repetitive movements, stress, and wear and tear.
