Shoulder Injections

For patient comfort and to assist in deciding upon therapeutic efficacy, the Advanced Pain Institute offers orthovisc, monovisc, and hyalgan treatments.

Orthovisc

Orthovisc (hyaluronan) is similar to the fluid that surrounds the joints in your body. This fluid acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for the joints. Orthovisc is used to treat knee pain caused by osteoarthritis.

Monovisc

MONOVISC is a single injection viscosupplement utilized to treat the joint pain caused by osteoarthritis. It is comprised of highly purified, partially cross-linked sodium hyaluronate (NaHA) in a phosphate buffered saline solution, and it is both biocompatible and resorbable.

With just one injection, MONOVISC may provide pain relief that lasts for up to 6 months.

Hyalgan

Sodium hyaluronate is similar to the fluid that surrounds the joints in your body. This fluid acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for the joints.

Sodium hyaluronate is used to treat knee pain caused by osteoarthritis.

Sodium hyaluronate is usually given after other arthritis medications have been tried without successful treatment of symptoms.

Sodium hyaluronate may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
