Fluoroscopic Injections at Grand Central Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Fluoroscopic injections are performed with the guidance of medical imaging technique with maximum accuracy. When a patient comes in to receive fluoroscopic injections, the area receiving the injections will be cleaned and well-prepped. Our doctors will then numb a small area of the skin. Once the area is numbed, a fluoroscope will be used to direct a very small needle into the joint. A fluoroscope is an x-ray machine that allows the doctor to see an x-ray image while performing the injection. Once the correct position for the injection is confirmed, the medical mixture will be injected and the needle will be removed.
