• Joint Injections

    The aspiration (draining) and injection of muscles and joints can provide quick and significant pain relief for a variety of conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Lupus, Osteoarthritis, Gout, Fibromyalgia, Tendonitis and Bursitis.

    The injection site is cleaned and prepped and the injection site is anesthetized with a numbing spray (ethyl chloride). Depending on the type of injection, we may administer an additional numbing medication such as marcaine or lidocaine. The affected area is typically injected with steroids but we also provide viscosupplement injections for knee osteoarthritis. Viscosupplementation is the injection of a gel-like substance into the knee joint which acts like a lubricant. Viscosupplement injections are given once per week for 3 weeks in a row. Results from viscosupplement injections may vary depending on the severity of your knee arthritis however we have many patients who report decreased pain and increased mobility in their knees after completing the viscosupplement series.

  • Infusion Center

    Many conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis can be treated with intravenously infused medications. Our skilled infusion nurses and physicians will administer and monitor the intravenous medications in our comfortable infusion suites.

  • Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

    Musculoskeletal Ultrasound machines use high-frequency sound waves to visualize anatomical structures in 3D. Your physician may use a Musculoskeletal ultrasound machine to evaluate a body region or to guide soft-tissue or joint injections.

  • Bone Densitometry & Heel Ultrasound

    Osteoporosis is a skeletal disorder which is characterized by low bone mass and deterioration which leads to an increased risk of fractures. Over 10 million people have osteoporosis and there are 1.5 million osteoporosis related fractures in the United States every year. Our physicians use a combination of Heel Ultrasound and DXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) machines to diagnose and treat osteoporosis. The risk of osteoporosis increases with age and long term steroid use significantly increases the risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures. If you have been on steroids for more than 3 months, ask your Rheumatologist if a DXA scan is appropriate.
