Joint Injections

Joint Injections

This range of procedures helps reduce pain by injecting medications that help numb specific areas and decrease swelling and inflammation in the joints. Treatments include the following options:

Shoulder Joint Injection (intra-articular)

This non-operative, outpatient procedure is designed to provide relief for patients with arthritis, injury or disorder of the shoulder joint.  The technique allows the physician to inject numbing and anti-inflammatory medications directly into the shoulder joint.

Knee Joint Injection (intra-articular)

This non-operative, outpatient procedure is designed to provide relief for patients with arthritis, injury or disorder of the knee joint.  The technique allows the physician to inject numbing and anti-inflammatory medications directly into the knee joint.

Hip Joint Injection (intra-articular)

This non-operative, outpatient procedure is designed to provide relief for patients with arthritis, injury or disorder of the hip joint.  The technique allows the physician to inject numbing and anti-inflammatory medications directly into the hip joint.

Trochanteric Bursitis

A bursa is a gel-filled sac that helps muscles and tendons glide over bones.  You have bursae in your shoulders, elbow, hips, knees and other parts of your body.  When bursae get swollen, they can cause joint pain.  A steroid medication injected into your bursa can help reduce the inflammation and alleviate the pain.  (Video shows an example of greater trochanteric bursa injection.)
