Musculoskeletal Ultrasounds Evaluations & Ultrasound Guided Injections | San Francisco, CA
Why guess when you can see?! The ability to see your injury in real time helps create a treatment plan fast and efficiently. Using image guidance for injections allows for precise placement and faster recovery.
We use musculoskeletal ultrasound for guided injections of biologics and corticosteroids for all peripheral joints, around nerves, cysts, and peritendinous structures. These benefit patients in lowering the cost of procedures, involving no radiation/contrast, identifying nerves & arteries accurately, and having better accuracy than palpation-guided injections.
We also use musculoskeletal ultrasound as an in-office tool for evaluation of bone, nerves, and soft tissues including tendons, muscles, ligaments, and cysts. These evaluations can help dynamically identify problems with movement. This allows for real time visualization and diagnosis often avoiding costly MRI imaging and repeat office visits. These benefit patients in lowering the cost of care and avoiding length of time to diagnosis.

We offer diagnostic and/or therapeutic injections for the hip, shoulder, wrist, hand, foot, ankle, and elbow.
