Ultrasound-Guided Procedures

Our office specializes in various types of procedures including joint aspirations, corticosteroid injections, viscosupplementation injections, platelet rich plasma therapy, and hydrodissection for nerve impingement of the carpal tunnel. Each procedure is performed with ultrasound guidance technology allowing for accuracy in locating the point of injection, thereby maximizing benefits of healing and/or pain relief.

Ultrasound technology is hugely effective in the visualization, diagnosis, and treatment of several musculoskeletal conditions. One of its advantages includes real-time guidance in which we are able to visualize the needle throughout the entirety of the procedure. Utilizing ultrasound technology assures pinpoint accuracy of the needle into the appropriate tissue or joint space, enabling patients to obtain the maximum benefits of the medication injected.
