Do you have arthrisit in your knee, but not ready to have surgery? A Synvisc injection could help be that buffer! Synvisc-One® (hylan G-F 20) otherwise known as the “rooster shot” is an injection that supplements the fluid in your knee to help lubricate and cushion the joint, and can provide up to six months of osteoarthritis knee pain relief by improving the knee joint’s natural shock absorbing abilities. The injection contains a gel-like mixture made from a substance called hyaluronan that comes from chicken combs. Hyaluronan is a natural substance found in the body and is present in very high amounts in joints. All of our orthopedic physicians and physicians assistants here at Comportho perform this injection.
