How it works
Joints affected by osteoarthritis typically have lower concentrations of hyaluronic acid in the synovial fluid. As a result, the synovial fluid also has lower viscosity and elasticity than healthy synovial fluid, decreasing its ability to lubricate the joint and absorb shocks.
Viscosupplements such as MONOVISC are designed to replace the body’s natural hyaluronic acid, providing significant pain relief from the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
Features and Benefits:

Single injection
Just one injection of MONOVISC is required to treat the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Other viscosupplements may require up to five injections for the same treatment. The single injection regimen:
Decreases office visits
Lowers cost and inconvenience to the patient
Reduces the risk or difficulty associated with multiple injections

The MONOVISC difference
MONOVISC is specially formulated for a single-injection treatment by lightly cross-linking the hyaluronic acid (HA) polymers using a proprietary technology. Light cross-linking:
Stabilizes the HA polymers for durability
Retains all of the natural benefits of HA

Safe, natural source
MONOVISC is made from highly purified, non-animal, natural hyaluronan. Hyaluronan occurs naturally throughout the body, especially in articular cartilage, synovial fluid in joints and in the skin.
