Performing and interpreting musculoskeletal ultrasound requires lengthy training, which your doctor successfully finished. Most physicians still use a “blind” technique, which uses surface anatomy to make a good guess as to where to place the needle. Even in the most experienced hands, this procedure has a variable success rate. Ultrasound technology offers many advantages.
We use a revolutionary Platelets-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy which utilize your own body capacity to promote repair and healing tissues like tendons, ligaments and joints.
A new procedure has been developed to treat Carpal Tunnel syndrome. Using Ultrasound Guidance, the nerve can be "hydro-dissected" from the neighboring tissues using a small needle. The transverse carpal ligament that covers the carpal tunnel can also be partially released with a needle tip to open up the tunnel. This is an in-office procedure that takes less than 40 minutes and leaves no significant scar. If these techniques are unsuccessful, the patient may choose to have surgery to more completely separate the transverse carpal ligament. Injections using Ultrasound Guidance help avoid unnecessary risk and provide a precise approach to release the nerve from the nearby constrictions.
