Re: Has anyone else had no relief from SYNVISC?
I had a rehab doctor that wanted me to have synvisc injection into my hip. I did not as it is off label on hips but is approved for knees. I did some research on synvisc. It seems to help some people when injected in the knee but there were some studies out there that said they found it was no better than taking pain meds.
Many of the studies I found on the internet were done by the manufacture. The was one published in the JAMA by two doctors that said it was no better than pain meds.
Most of the emails I see are glowing reports from people saying synvisc has helped their knee pain.
Thats all I know about the subject and it "ain't" much, sorry.
