What is OrtholureTM Orthopedic Viscosupplement?

OrtholureTM Orthopedic Viscosupplement is a sterile, viscous, high molecular weight hyaluronan solution. The highly purified fermentation sourced hyaluronan in OrtholureTM Orthopedic Viscosupplement ameliorates symptoms of osteoarthritis by supple­menting the body’s own hyaluronan in synovial fluid. The presence of hyaluronan in synovial joints such as the knee helps ensure normal painless joint movement due to its lubricating and shock-absorbing properties.

Why choose OrtholureTM Orthopedic Viscosupplement?

Several treatment options are available to patients who suffer from pain associated with osteoarthritis. Depending on severity or degenerative progression, treatments may range from simple non-drug treatments like physical therapy and weight loss to more invasive treatments like surgery. Drug therapy options include nonprescription NSAIDs, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and naproxen. Additional drug therapies include prescription-strength NSAIDs, cox-2 inhibitors and corticosteroid injections.

Today, patients that decide to pursue non-drug therapy, or do not get adequate pain relief from drug treatments, can request viscosupplementation therapy.

For these individuals, OrtholureTM Orthopedic Viscosupplement, which has been CE marked since 2004, offers a safe alternative to drug therapy by treating joint pain at the source.
