What are Orthobiologics?
Orthobiologics are biological substances that are made from substances that occur naturally in the body. These are used to help injuries to heal more quickly and for arthritis to help bones and tissues regenerate and heal.
In addition to stem cells, PRP, and amniotic products, we can use Orthobiologics such as Synvisc, Synvisc-1, Hyalgan, Hymovisc, and Orthovisc.
These are injectables with a gel consistency. We usually use these for knee osteoarthritis to cushion the joint but we can also use for other joints.
What is Synvisc?
Synvisc® 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. The body’s own hyaluronan acts like a lubricant and a shock absorber in the joint and is needed for the joint to work properly.
