Fluoroscopic Guided Hip Injection

WHAT IS FLUOROSCOPIC GUIDED HIP INJECTION?

A fluoroscopic guided hip injection is a non-operative, outpatient procedure that allows the physician to inject numbing and anti-inflammatory medication with maximum accuracy.

HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER INJECTIONS?

A fluoroscopic guided hip injection utilizes an x-ray device called a fluoroscope, which is a tube-shaped device that is positioned over the hip. The use of a fluoroscope gives a continuous video feed onto a monitor that displays plenty of detail inside the body. A dye is used as a contrast for more accurate positioning of the needle. Once the needle is in the correct position, the physician replaces the syringe with dye with the syringe with medication.
