Dr. Hammonds is trained to do joint and soft tissue injections to treat conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, and/or to aspirate/remove fluid from swollen joints or bursa. Dr. Hammonds usually does these with ultrasound (US) guidance to ensure proper placement of the injection. This is often the difference between success and failure for an injection treatment. Dr. Hammonds does all hip and shoulder joint injections under ultrasound guidance due to the close proximity of important nerves and vessels and need to ensure injections are delivered to the correct location. Some possible injections may be corticosteroid injections, viscosupplementation,(ie: Synvisc-1, Hyalgan, Euflexxa, etc) as well as anti-inflammatory injections such as toradol and cell therapy injections.
