Ultrasound-Guided Joint, Hip, Shoulder Injections In Brooklyn, NYC

What Is An Ultrasound-Guided Injection?

Ultrasound-Guided Injections are the latest advancement in pan management. This technique administers medications to the painful area using ultrasound guidance. Ultrasound is a device that provides live imagining of the structures in your body and the needle’s position as it penetrates your tissues.
Ultrasound guidance prevents the need for a hit-or-miss approach because it guides the needle directly at the source of your pain. It’s an advanced injection therapy that is minimally invasive, safe and allows extreme accuracy when delivering the medication.
We administer cortisone, lidocaine, or hyaluronic acid with ultrasound to provide pain relief and tissue healing. The ultrasound-guided injection treats various musculoskeletal pain by reducing inflammation and promoting your natural healing response:
  • Cortisone injections: Ultrasound-guided cortisone injections reduce inflammation and prevent further damage from acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries.
  • Lidocaine injections: Lidocaine numbs pain receptors and blocks the transmission of pain signals to your brain and spinal cord. It’s a local anesthetic that will leave you pain-free for days or weeks.
  • Hyaluronic acid (HA) injections: Also known as hyaluronan, HA lubricates your joints to reduce painful friction. It also functions as a shock absorber for heavy loads acting on your joints. It’s an excellent alternative to knee replacement surgery due to osteoarthritis.

How Do Ultrasound-Guided Injections Relieve Pain?

Using the ultrasound, Dr. Sardar performs a preliminary scan of the affected area to locate the precise location to insert the needle. Once the site is located, he preps your skin with an antiseptic solution.
Typically, ultrasound-guided injections use a mixture of steroids and local anesthetic to numb the pain and soothe the area.
We hold the ultrasound probe over the target area, and Dr. Sardar pushes the needle into your skin and toward the painful tissue. The ultrasound’s real-time imaging allows him to avoid nearby structures and administer the injection with precision.
It’s an outpatient procedure that requires very little preparation or post-appointment support. The entire process can take up to 5 to 10 minutes. After a short monitoring period, you’re free to go right after the procedure.
The anesthetic effect of the ultrasound-guided injection can last days after your session. Evidence from clinical trials reveals significant long-term improvements up to 6 weeks after the injection in some patients.
