Ultrasound -Guided Injection Services
Available at Victoria Medical Group
Victoria Medical Group Clinic provides precision ultrasound-guided joint injection services, performed by our professionally trained physicians. The ultrasound-guided injections have been widely used as an effective tool for pain management of joints, tendons and ligaments. The procedure is carried out under ultrasound guidance. It allows the practitioner to visualize the needle in real time as it enters the body and traverses to the desired location. This assures that the medication is accurately injected at the intended site.
