The cost of injections will depend on the cost of what is being injected.
While avoiding an injection should be the goal if possible they are sometimes quite useful in accelerating recovery. Aspiration (removal of fluid) is also performed under ultrasound guidance. Ultrasound can be used to confirm or rule out a diagnosis and to guide a needle for more accurate injections. It is an increasingly common part of sports medicine practice. Ultrasound may be performed as part of the consultation. It will not add to the out of pocket expense to a medicare eligible patient.
