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.

I used Orthrovisc for several years with great results. I'm bone on bone at age 62. In April, I gave the Synvisc One a try since it only required the one doctor visit. Well, wish now I went with what I knew helped me, Orthrovisc. It could possibly be my knees are getting worse and neither would have helped but in 6 months, I'll go back to my Orthrovisc.
