Product Information

Hyaluronan injections can help provide relief for osteoarthritis knee pain when other treatments no longer work. Purchase Orthovisc from Medical Device Source to lubricate the knee joint with hyaluronan, providing long-lasting pain relief. Orthovisc is made from high molecular weight, ultra-pure hyaluronan that comes from bacterial cells, not from rooster combs. This means that unlike some other brands of osteoarthritis injections, it is safe for patients who have avian allergies like feathers and eggs. The hyaluronan in Orthovisc is similar to the synovial fluid normally found in healthy knee joints, providing lubrication and a cushioning effect to the joint even when the naturally-occuring hyaluronan has broken down. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage in the knees or other joints breaks down, along with the hyaluronan in the synovial fluid. The joints have then lost their protection and the bones rub together, causing pain and inflammation. Orthovisc helps by providing the lubrication and cushioning the knee needs to move pain-free, helping osteoarthritis patients regain their mobility. Although the first osteoarthritis treatments include exercise, physiotherapy, corticosteroid injections, and medications like acetaminophen, these treatments can become less effective over time. You can use Orthovisc injections to supplement or replace these other osteoarthritis treatments, ensuring your patients receive the osteoarthritis pain relief they need to live their lives to the fullest. After removing any excess fluid from the knee or other joint, inject Orthovisc directly into the affected joint. You should give your patients Orthovisc injections a week apart, with three or four treatments total, and once their series of treatments is complete they should experience osteoarthritis relief for up to six months. Some patients may experience relief after the first injection and some patients may need all four injections to notice an improvement, but you can adjust the number of treatments accordingly to ensure your patients get the relief they need from their osteoarthritis pain.

Injections of Orthovisc can cause some common side effects such as headache, back pain, and joint pain, as well as temporary pain, bruising, redness, swelling, and a warm feeling at the injection site. You should not inject Orthovisc into areas that have a skin disease or infection or into patients who have a bleeding disorder such as hemophilia. You should not use certain skin disinfectants to prepare the skin since that can cause hyaluronic acid to precipitate. After an Orthovisc injection treatment, tell your patients to avoid strenuous activities, like heavy lifting, tennis, jogging, and standing for more than an hour at a time, for about two days. Since Orthovisc is not produced from an avian source, it is safe for your patients who have an avian allergy, although patients with a hyaluronan allergy or sensitivity should avoid this medical device.

Osteoarthritis of the knee can occur with aging, injury, or strenuous activities such as sports. When other treatments have failed to bring your patients the osteoarthritis pain relief they need, Orthovisc injections can help lubricate their joints for more comfortable movement. Purchase Orthovisc from Medical Device Source to treat osteoarthritis of the knee.
