What to expect with your HYALGAN® treatment
HYALGAN® injections give you long-lasting relief of osteoarthritis knee pain
- HYALGAN® can provide long-lasting pain relief for up to 6 months
- HYALGAN® can be safely used for up to 30 months
HYALGAN® is a safe choice
HYALGAN® is not a drug. Its principal component is a naturally derived substance called hyaluronan that relieves your pain by lubricating and cushioning your knee joint. Hyaluronan is a natural chemical found in the body and is present in a particularly high amount in joint tissues and in the fluid that fills the joint (also called synovial fluid). HYALGAN® is injected directly into the knee.
HYALGAN® injections work differently than oral pain medications. HYALGAN® does not pass through your bloodstream to work. Because HYALGAN® is injected directly into your knee, it does not cause stomach bleeding problems like some pain medications.
- HYALGAN® does not interfere with any other medicines you may be taking for osteoarthritis or other conditions
- HYALGAN® has been shown to be safe for repeat treatment in a 30-month study
