Why Amniovisc is better then Orthovisc

Is AmnioVisc the new improved Orthovisc?

Viscosupplementation, aka Rooster Comb Injections have been around for many of years. These injections have been a go to treatment by many orthopedic surgeons for treatment for knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. They are made from a natural substance called hyaluronic acid that has almost no side effects. They act like a lubricant in the knee and reduce both friction and pain. But what if I told you at Desert Health Specialists we have found a way to improve these injections and potentially provide you longer relief. Introducing AmnioVisc, this is a injectable solution that combines the best that viscosupplemation injection offer with amnio allograoft fluid. With approximately 27 million americans suffering from osteoarthritis pain and not getting the relief they deserve with just the basic rooster comb injections, AmnioVisc could be the next big wave in Natural Pain Relief!

The Research

  • In a recent 275 patient study to assess its efficacy and safety Amniovisc outperformed Orthovisc and many of the other viscosupplementation injections. Research studies of AmnioVisc Click Here.
    • 180 Day post injection comparison
      • 78% AmnioVisc patients reported greater then 40% relief
      • 62% Monovisc patients reported greater then 40% relief
      • 50% Orthovisc patients reported greater then 40% relief
    • 6 month Comparison
      • 54.1% AmnioVisc patients reported continual improvement in pain reduction.
      • 33.8% of Synvisc-One patients reported continual improvement in pain reduction.

As you can see form the research this new injection is different that all the other osteoarthritis therapies. This is a Natural solution that is injected into your joint of pain which has the potential to provide real relief with out all the harmful side affects associated with other osteoarthritis injections.
