A Fluoroscopic Guided Hip Injection is an outpatient, non surgical procedure that provides pain relief of chronic hip pain. It allows for maximum placement accuracy. It is typically used to treat arthritis of the hip which cause painful chronic inflammation and degeneration resulting in decreased range of motion and function.
Numbing and anti inflammatory medications are injected using a fluoroscope to view images of dye injected into the area. This gives a crystal clear vision of where the medication will yield optimal results. Many patients experience immense relief and are able to resume normal daily routine activities the next day.
