Why We Use It

People with osteoarthritis generally have less hyaluronic acid in their joints than they should. This can cause symptoms like pain, stiffness, and swelling. The idea behind viscosupplementation is that replacing this hyaluronic acid may help reduce symptoms.

How it Works

Viscosupplementation is a procedure where a gel-like substance called hyaluronic acid, which is a component of synovial fluid, is injected into the joints to increase its lubricating and shock-absorbing properties.

GenVisc is a sterile, viscoelastic non-pyrogenic solution of purified, high molecular weight sodium hyaluronate. It is administered by intra-articular injections of the knee and consists of five injections, given at a weekly interval.

It is indicated for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis (OA) in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative non-pharmacologic therapy and simple analgesics, e.g., acetaminophen.
