"Gel-One Hyaluronate is a vital component in the continuum of treatments for knee osteoarthritis, offering millions of patients the potential for up to six months of pain relief with a single injection," said
Gel-One Cross-Linked Hyaluronate is the first low-volume viscosupplement available in a single-injection formulation for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee. Hyaluronic acid (HA) products such as Gel-One Cross-linked Hyaluronate may supplement the natural HA of the knee, which provides cushioning and lubrication to the joint. Gel-One Cross-linked Hyaluronate requires only a single 3 mL injection to complete the treatment course.
