Orthovisc is an injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) viscosupplement used to alleviate osteoarthritis-related joint pain.
A Safe Treatment for Osteoarthritis with Minimal Side Effects
Orthovisc is a highly concentrated injectable solution that was designed to reduce the pain caused by osteoarthritis and improve joint functionality. The product is based on sodium hyaluronate (NaHA), which has been processed to a high level of purity and dissolved in physiological saline, making the product both biocompatible and resorbable.
