Hip Joint Injection/Ablation

Joint Injections

A joint injection is an outpatient procedure that is used to treat inflamed joints. The injection can be used to treat conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, tendinitis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and osteoarthritis. During the procedure, the patient will lie on the procedure table while an assistant sterilizes that area where the injection will be. The area will then be numbed with a local anesthesia or cold spray. The physician will most likely use an x-ray to help direct a small needle into the joint. Lastly, the physician will inject the medication into the joint. After the procedure is over the patient will rest before being released to a family member or friend. Depending on the medication, the injection can provide relief from pain, swelling, and stiffness. The following are common join injections we perform here at our facilities:

  • Facet Joint Injection
  • Knee Injection
  • Hip Joint Injection / Ablation
  • Shoulder Injection
