Osteoarthritis knee pain relief with an ultra-pure hyaluronic acid viscosupplement

What is Monovisc®?

A hyaluronic acid injection that provides long-term relief from osteoarthritis knee pain

Monovisc® is a viscosupplement that contains a gel-like substance manufactured from ultra-pure, non-avian hyaluronic acid that supplements the hyaluronic acid naturally found in the synovial fluid of a healthy knee.

Did you know?

A single, intra-articular injection of Monovisc® can provide osteoarthritis knee pain relief that’s felt as early as 2 weeks following the injection and that can last up to
6 months.

How does it work?

Well-tolerated, lubricating properties of Monovisc® result in osteoarthritis knee pain relief

Over time, changes in the synovial fluid and degeneration of joint structures may lead to osteoarthritis knee pain.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the synovial fluid of the knee joint. Viscosupplementation, or the injection of hyaluronic acid into the joint, is thought to lubricate the cartilage (much as oil lubricates an engine), thereby reducing pain for long-term relief.

How can it help?

Osteoarthritis and viscosupplementation

When you have osteoarthritis, there may not be enough natural hyaluronic acid in the joint, and the quality of that hyaluronic acid may be poorer than normal.

Monovisc® delivers ultra-pure, well-tolerated hyaluronic acid directly into the knee joint to improve the lubricant properties of the synovial fluid and provide long-term osteoarthritis knee pain relief.

Osteoarthritis knee joint

  1. Cartilage wears away: Over time, the bone surfaces may rub together.
  2. Synovial fluid becomes less healthy: The fluid becomes thinner and less elastic.
  3. Exposed bone
  4. Bone spurs

When to consider Monovisc® for osteoarthritis knee pain relief
