Rheumatology in Greater Chicago South Suburbs

Ultrasound Guided Injections

Various types of injections into the joints have proven to be excellent therapeutic tools in the non-surgical treatment of many rheumatic conditions, including tendinitis, bursitis, and rheumatoid arthritis. But these injections must be administered in the right area for them to have their full intended effect, and traditional methods can sometimes lead to inaccuracy. 

At Southland Rheumatology Center, Dr. Nayak and our highly-trained and experienced rheumatology team use cutting-edge ultrasound-guided joint injections to ensure the most effective delivery of therapies into your joint or bursa. We’ll perform your injections in a clean, sterile environment with a comfortable touch, and our friendly staff are always here to help you should you have any questions.

If you’re ready to find relief for the pain, discomfort and loss of mobility you’re feeling as a result of a rheumatic condition, schedule an appointment with the team at Southland Rheumatology Center to discuss ultrasound-guided injections as an option for you.
