Mrs. Karen SaulichMrs. Saulich is a 48-year-old female who suffers from chronic knee pain due to arthritis. She has undergone two arthroscopic surgeries on her left knee, one in 1989 and the other one in 1997. She is not a candidate for total knee arthroplasty due to her age. She did not respond to medications, physical therapy, or steroid injections. A Hyalgan injection was therefore recommended. She reports significant improvement in her pain since completing a series of five injections.

"Believe it or not, I took the first injection last week and my knee feels better already. I sleep much better. I could not believe such an improvement after one injection."
