Hey Susutea- I googled SYNVISC and this is what I found...

Synvisc is a safe treatment for early osteoarthritis of the knee. While not proven to be a long-term solution, this may improve symptoms and delay the need for surgical treatment of knee osteoarthritis. Synvisc is ONLY approved for use in the knee joint. Treatments are safely and easily performed, and there are few-side effects.

Here are some Pros and Cons:

Pros
  • A Synvisc injection is easily performed in the doctor's office
  • Synvisc has few side-effects include swelling and pain in the knee
  • Minimally invasive compared to possible joint replacement surgery
Cons
  • No one knows about Synvisc treatment after 15 or 20 years
  • Advanced arthritis tends not to have as good a treatment response
  • Not all insurers cover Synvisc treatments-check with your provider

I am still looking for more ankle information for you... I will post it as soon as I find it... Good luck to you.. Duck
