Frequently Asked Questions

What are MSK Ultrasound Guided Injections?

MSK Ultrasound Guided Injections are a minimally invasive procedure used to treat musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions such as joint pain, arthritis, and tendonitis. This technique involves using ultrasound technology to precisely guide the injection into the affected area, ensuring maximum accuracy and effectiveness.

Why might I need an MSK Ultrasound Guided Injection?

You may require this procedure if you are experiencing chronic pain or discomfort in your joints or soft tissues. It can help diagnose and treat various conditions, reducing pain and improving mobility without the need for major surgery.

What is IV Sedation, and why is it provided on-site?

IV Sedation is a safe and effective way to help patients relax during certain medical procedures. Our on-site anesthesiologist administers and monitors the sedation to ensure your comfort and safety throughout the injection procedure. This minimizes anxiety and discomfort, making the experience more pleasant for you.

What can I expect during the procedure?

During the procedure, you will lie comfortably on an examination table. Our anesthesiologist will start the IV sedation to ensure you are relaxed and pain-free.
