ORTHOVISC

After months of discomfort due to a torn meniscus, a bone spur and arthritis I  elected to receive  injections of Orthovisc into my left knee! It is made from natural hyaluronan which is similar to the fluid that surrounds the joints in your body! It was a series of three injections, my last one was two weeks ago Friday! Update: Unfortunately the injections have not helped  to ease the discomfort! I will explore other remedies but I honestly feel surgery is on the horizon!
