It’s the only single-injection viscosupplement approved for relief of joint pain in all synovial joints. Created by the makers of ORTHOVISC, MONOVISC is specially formulated for a single-injection regimen, giving you enhanced durability in a safe, easy-to-use, single injection.
In people with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, the synovial fluid becomes thinner and less able to do its job. Monovisc is similar to the HA found in healthy knees. It is a prescription, non-surgical therapy that your doctor can treat you with, during one office visit. Monovisc is designed to help patients who are not getting enough relief from non-prescription pain relievers or from exercise and physical therapy. When Monovisc is injected into the knee, it helps replenish the HA in the knee and helps restore the ability of the synovial fluid to cushion, lubricate, and protect the knee.
