Ultrasound-guided injections are commonly used for various medical purposes, including the delivery of steroids or hyaluronic acid (HA), and are considered superior to blind injections. There are studies that show blind injection accuracy as low as 40 percent.

Fellowship-trained sports medicine experts Dr. Austin Chen, Dr. Brian Davis, Dr. Ilya Igolnikov, and Dr. Melanie Worley administer ultrasound-guided injections as a less invasive treatment option for patients. 

Advantages of ultrasound-guided injections include:

  • Precision and improved accuracy rates
  • Enhanced patient comfort
  • Increased patient satisfaction

Utilizing ultrasound-guided injections ensure that patient outcomes, comfort, and satisfaction of the procedure are optimized. To learn more or to schedule an appointment with one of our specialists, please call 303.449.2730.
