Ultrasound Guided Procedures

The Ultrasound Guided Procedures

The painful condition is first diagnosed clinically and reconfirmed with an ultrasound scan of the painful structure. Muscle, tendon, nerve, ligament and to some extent, joint pathologies can be very well diagnosed with ultrasound. Once the diagnosis is made ultrasound-guided intervention of the pathological structure is done. Image guidance helps in delivering the injectate at the right place. Ultrasound

Guided Procedure: Joint injections: shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot.

Ligaments: injury and tear

Tendon: Tenosynovitis, Tendinosis, Partial Tear,

 Nerves: Hydro Dissection of the entrapped nerves and Cryo-Neurolysis.

Ultrasound-Guided Interventions

Ultrasound machines allow us to see structures such as tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints in real time for a precise injection delivery. This allows us to safely inject structures into the body that are otherwise difficult to examine and find. It also allows us to avoid important structures such as blood vessels and nerves that may be in the path of the injection needle. It allows our providers to see and avoid potential complications in real time during the procedure. We use ultrasound-guided injections to ensure our care is optimized for your specific needs. Ultrasound-guided interventions are performed as a daycare procedure.

The interventions are performed with a sono needle placed through your skin, which can be painful. However, we take care to numb the skin so that pain is minimal. No anesthesia is required. These interventions are done under sterile conditions.

Conditions Treated

Ultrasound-guided injections are most commonly used to help treat osteoarthritis, labral tears, tendinitis, tenosynovitis, and calcific tendinitis. Injections are also used in the hand, wrist, forearm, elbow, shoulder, AC joint, sternoclavicular joint, hip, knee, ankle, foot, and sacroiliac joint (SI joint).

We use ultrasound-guided interventions involving the following injectates:

  • Corticosteroids can be injected into joints and tendon sheaths using ultrasound guidance. Ultrasound-guided corticosteroid injections work to get the inflammation out of painful areas.
  • Anesthetic numbing medications may be used on their own for diagnostic injections and usually in conjunction with corticosteroids for therapeutic injections.
  • Hyaluronic Acid is used for lubricating injections into the knee joint.
  • Tenotomy is an intervention that uses a needle to make tiny holes in a tendon through the skin. The ultrasound machine is used to guide the needling of a tendon to encourage healing.
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections use ultrasound guidance in the two-step process to reinject platelet-rich blood back into a patient’s body to help treat painful conditions such as Achilles tendonitis, chronic hamstring tendonitis, tennis elbow, and others.

Are Ultrasound-Guided Interventions Right for Me?

Your doctor will determine if these interventions are appropriate for your specific orthopedic condition. Ask your doctor for more information. Talk to your doctor to learn more about ultrasound-guided injections and if it might be the right treatment for you.
