Why Do Regenerative Medicine Physicians Use Ultrasound?

by | Aug 13, 2020 | Uncategorized

Using ultrasound in regenerative medicine is becoming the standard of care in the industry. Why? There are two reasons why in-office ultrasound imaging helps doctors like Dr. Wood deliver better care.

First, an ultrasound machine allows regenerative physicians to see what’s going on in and around the joint or problem area in real time and provide a diagnosis on the spot, without sending out for an MRI and scheduling a follow-up visit. That means patients can start receiving treatment sooner and feeling better faster, plus it is more convenient for patients.

Second, ultrasound is used to guide injections, for better precision. Physicians can see the needle being injected directly into the affected area and target the right spot for better outcomes.

Dr. Wood is one of the few regenerative medicine physicians in the area who uses in-office ultrasound for diagnosis and injection guidance. If you’ve got a condition that could benefit from a consultation, contact us to schedule an appointment.
