Ensure Accuracy

We can see your affected areas through ultrasound. For this reason, we can place the needle accurately and make sure the medicine goes exactly where it should be given to help you feel better. 

Guarantee Safety

We inject your medication by seeing the inside of your body. For this reason, there is no chance of causing injury to the surrounding tissues, blood vessels or nerves. Therefore, it minimizes the risk of complications and side effects compared to traditional blind injections.

Increased Effectiveness

This treatment process allows us to inject the medications or solution to your problem directly to the target area. For this reason, the effectiveness of the treatment increases and helps you feel better and move more comfortably.

Reduced Pain and Discomfort

Our Treatment Procedure

Initial assessment

We assess your overall health condition. We take a detailed medical history and discuss your symptoms and health goals. We check the joint function and identify areas of concern. We review any previous imaging studies if available. Then we create customized treatment plan for you based on your needs. 

Treatment Process

We clearly explain the procedure, benefits and risks before we start your treatment. We also tell you about post procedure care so that you can make informed decisions about your health. We prepare you for the US guided joint injection treatment. We position you comfortably. After that we clean your joint and affected area with an antiseptic solution. We numb the area with local anesthesia to make the process painless. We use the ultrasound device on your joints to see the inside condition of your joints and surroundings. This helps us identify the right place to inject the injection. We insert the needle in your joint space while seeing the inside areas through ultrasound. We also adjust the needle position if necessary. We first set the position of the needle and then inject the medications required for your conditions. 

Post Procedure Care

This procedure can cause minor side effects like temporary pain, infection or allergic reactions. We monitor you for a short period to ensure you don’t experience immediate negative side effects. We also provide treatment for your side effects. 

Follow Up

We provide you follow-up appointments to monitor the effectiveness of the injection. We check your affected area and adjust your treatment if necessary.
