Expert in ultrasound-guided injections
Dr. Masci’s injection expertise makes him a leading contributor in this specialised field. He performs a great deal of in-depth research on the benefits and advantages of ultrasound-guided injections. In addition, he speaks regularly and contributes to lectures and educational programming on the subject. Finally, Dr. Masci’s injection expertise is available in an online education program. He partners with Sonoskills to produce an online learning program for sports doctors and other professionals.
In addition to teaching and research, Dr. Lorenzo Masci performs a wide range of ultrasound-guided injections in private practice. At Sportdoctorlondon, types of injections include cortisone, hyaluronic acid (Durolane, Synvisc, Ostenil) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). As noted, ultrasound guidance enables direct visualisation of the structure to be injected. As a result, more accurate injections occur. Nevertheless, injection therapy provides the most benefit when combined with a rehab program.
Many forms of tendon problems are treatable with ultrasound-guided injections. Achilles tendonitis, peroneal tendonitis, tennis elbow, patellar tendinopathy, and shoulder pain are all conditions that respond to injection therapy.
