Synvisc (Hylan GF 20, or Hyaluronic Acid) is prescription medication used to treat knee pain caused by osteoarthritis (OA) for adults who are 21 years or older. Synvisc injection contains a gel-like mixture made from a substance called Hyaluronan that comes from chicken combs. Hylan GF 20 is a viscosupplement injection that supplements the fluid in your knee to help lubricate and cushion the joint, and can provide pain relief and protect against certain damage. Synvisc injection is usually given after other medications have been tried without successful treatment of symptoms.

Synvisc injection is a non-surgical, non-invasive, and a pill free treatment that is injected directly into your knee by a doctor. Studies have shown that Synvisc can have favorable effects on cartilage when injected into joints.

In a study (The role of viscosupplementation with hylan GF 20 (Synvisc) in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee: a Canadian multicenter trial comparing hylan GF 20 alone…, December 1995), ME Adams, MH Atkinson, AJ Lussier, JI Schulz, found that “Hylan G-F 20 is a safe and effective treatment for OA of the knee and can be used either as a replacement for or an adjunct to NSAID therapy.”
