Viscosupplementation has been studied for osteoarthritis treatment since the 1970s.
Synvisc was FDA approved on 08/08/97.
Synvisc injections are typically given once a week, 7 days apart, over a 15-day period, for a total of three injections.
To get the best results, diseased osteoarthritic synovial fluid is typically removed from the knee before the first injection.
Synvisc is considered a treatment or therapy, not a drug.
