Showing the single result

There exists a natural occurring fluid between joints known as Synovial fluid. It acts as a cushion and a lubricant, it is and is essential for proper pain-free movement of the joint. Orthovisc is similar to the body’s synovial fluid, in that it prevents bones from contact, which can cause severe pain. It is a sterile, non-pyrogenic, clear, viscous solution that contains high molecular content of hyaluronan extracted from rooster comb.

What is Orthovisc?
