I had a set of 3 synvisc shots in my left knee. It did absolutely nothing for the pain in my knee. I had a tkr. Now my right knee is in the same shape as the left one was. The Dr. wants to give me orthovisc shots. I don t know if I should go through all that like I did with the synvisc shots thinking that they wouldn't work either.

It helped me within 24 hours. In less than a month, I had no pain. It has been a year with no pain. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. I saw a doctor at Kerlan and Jobe, the So. CA orthopedic clinic that does all the professional athletes. I figured that they wouldn't use crappy doctors for multi-million dollar athletes.
