What are Genvisc Injections?

The injections are composed of sodium hyaluronate, a chemical found naturally in the body’s various joints. Sodium hyaluronate acts as a lubricant that helps to cushion the joints and provide smoother movement.

Genvisc is used to treat knee pain in patients with joint inflammation (osteoarthritis). Typically, this treatment is for patients who have not responded to other treatments such as acetaminophen, exercise, or physical therapy. Hyaluronate (also referred to as hyaluronan) is similar to a chemical that is naturally present in your joints. The chemical acts as a lubricant and shock absorber in the joint, helping the knee move smoothly, thereby lessening pain.

The Benefits of Genvisc Injections

Research studies show that sodium hyaluronate injections are a safe and effective treatment for patients suffering from osteoarthritis who have seen little or no results from traditional treatments.

Benefits include:

A reduced need to take pain medications Significantly reduced inflammation in the joints Greatly improved knee pain relief The treatment is minimally invasive, with a short recovery time and little to no skin scarring
