MONOVISC® Pure and Simple

Relieves joint pain & improves mobility to put the spring back in your step and choices back into your life!

MONOVISC® (sodium hyaluronate) is a treatment to provide relief from the pain of osteoarhtritis (OA) of the knee. Now you have an alternative to the use of pain killers such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or steroids.

Given by your doctor, this proven treatment reduces joint pain and improves joint mobility allowing you to resume some of the activities you once enjoyed.

Benefits: Lubricates, cushions and protects the knee joint.

MONOVISC® renews more efficient lubrication and cushioning absent from the synovial fluid of an arthritic joint. It helps to restore essential properties of the synovial fluid.

MONOVISC® helps to lubricate, cushion and protect the knee joint, bringing relief that lasts up to 6 months, from one simple injection.

It is a simple procedure.

The procedure is called viscosupplementation - a simple procedure done by an orthopedic surgeon, rheumatologist, or other qualified health professional. Your doctor prepares your knee, then injects MONOVISC® directly into the knee joint where it combines with the synovial fluid.

For many patients, relief of osteoarthritic discomfort begins immediately and optimum results after a few days.

Important benefits of having treatment.

Patients can look forward to some of these advantages:

  • Significant pain reduction from OA of the knee lasting up to 6 months
  • Enhanced joint mobility and joint protection
  • Long-term relief achieved with one single injection
  • Resumption of many activities you once enjoyed

Made from a natural product.

MONOVISC® is a highly purified clear fluid made from a natural substance called sodium hyaluronate, which has been used in medicine for over 20 years. MONOVISC® has been specially formulated for single injection therapy. Your doctor can give you MONOVISC® by injection directly into the knee joint to relieve the pain of OS at that site.

Added benefits of local treatment.

  • MONOVISC® avoids the side effects often seen with traditional osteoarthritis treatments
  • MONOVISC® acts only in the knee joints, so it will not interfere with any other medications you are taking

Discuss MONOVISC® with your doctor.

You and your doctor can decide if MONOVISC® is right for you. Ask for more information about the benefits of this pure and simple way to relieve osteoarthritis pain and enhance joint function.
