Joint Injections

Dr. Ozturk can offer two types of joint injections, whenever appropriate, to help pain of arthritis or inflammation in knee, shoulder, elbow joints  and plantar fasciitis in the heel after an assessment:

 1) Steroid joint injection mixed with local anaesthesia

 2) Ostinel® injection: this is a “hyalurionic acid” injection which is It is injected into the joint space where synovial fluid (natural lubricant present in some joints) normally is and helps to restore the level of this lubricant to ease the pain of arthritis.
