Chemical Name: Sodium Hyaluronate
No prescription required for Canadian Customers.
ORTHOVISC is a viscous (thick) sterile mixture made from highly purified hyaluronan dissolved in saline. Hyaluronan is a natural chemical found in the joint fluid of your body. The body’s own hyaluronan acts like a lubricant and a shock absorber in the joint. It is needed for the joint to work properly.
ORTHOVISC is ultra-pure hyaluronan, which contains no buffers or preservatives. ORTHOVISC contains the highest concentration of hyaluronan available per injection.
ORTHOVISC is used to relieve knee pain due to osteoarthritis. It is used for patients who do not get adequate pain relief from simple pain relievers like acetaminophen or from exercise and physical therapy.
“Prescription required for orders placed from the USA”.
