The HealthPointe Ultrasound Guided Injection Clinic utilizes ultrasound guidance to perform procedures to treat pain due to joint, tendon, ligament, nerve and other musculoskeletal conditions. Ultrasound guidance improves the accuracy of delivering medications (cortisone, Hyaluronic Acid, Platelet Rich Plasma, etc.) into the targeted structure, while avoiding hitting nerves, joint cartilage, or surrounding vascular structures. This ensures patient safety and comfort, and improves the effectiveness of the procedure.
In order to access the Ultrasound Guided Injection Clinic, patients must be assessed by a HealthPointe physician to determine the causes of the patient’s symptoms, response to prior treatments, and order any required diagnostic imaging.
Treatment may require single or multiple appointments, and each appointment takes approximately 20-30 mins. Patients are asked to wear appropriate clothing that enables the doctors to access the area(s) they are treating.
A follow-up appointment will be arranged to assess the response to the injection and determine the best course of action.
