BENEFITS OF ULTRASOUND-GUIDED INJECTIONS
Whether it’s cortisone, PRP, stem cells, or any other therapeutic agent, the best healing substance in the world is worthless if it’s not injected accurately or safely.
Most physicians, including the vast majority of orthopedic surgeons, perform their injections ”blind,” that is, without the use of any guidance. However, studies have shown that even in the hands of the best orthopedists, injections can miss the intended target up to 50% of the time when done without guidance!
Particularly if you’re spending hard-earned money on treatments such as stem cells or PRP, you want to be absolutely certain that what’s being injected is actually going into the right spot!
At the New England Stem Cell Institute, we perform ALL of our injections under direct live ultrasound guidance to help ensure both accurate deliveries of the medication and safety. Our physicians are nationally recognized experts in ultrasound-guided injections. In fact, they teach other physicians around the country how to do ultrasound-guided injections for orthopedic and musculoskeletal applications!
