Ultrasound-Guided Cortisone Injections

Cortisone is a powerful anti-inflammation drug that is extremely effective in decreasing inflammation. In small doses, and used sparingly, it can be very effective in treating problems such as arthritis, tendonitis, and frozen shoulder.

Ultrasound guidance enables the injection to be given precisely into the affected body part. This allows use of the minimal amount of cortisone necessary and maximizes the chance that the injection will be effective or possibly cure the problem.

Ultrasound-guided cortisone injections can treat a number of orthopedic injuries. For an appointment with Dr. Frisella in St. Charles County, call (636) 229-4222 or request an appointment online.
